I found the bug, Fiddler don't like when you force end it (with taskkill /F)

Also when you start Fiddler with /quiet parameter, you can't end it with taskkill /IM Fiddler.exe, you need to force end it but if you force end the process he s gonna keep the proxy parameters...

Hello,

You could control Fiddler with the ExecAction command line tool which is installed in the Fiddler directory. You can read more about it here.

The command you are looking for is ExecAction.exe quit
