Removing a script (?) that continuously resets the "Use a proxy server..." box in LAN settings

My Win 10 64 bit PC has a function (a script?) running that continually resets the "Use a proxy server..." function in the LAN settings whenever I go to or change a web page. I have to un-check it each time I load or change a web page. Is there a way to remove or turn off that script permanently?

The only thing I could suggest might be to scan the computer for virus or malware infections...

These are the programs I use to generally delouse a computer with virus and or malware issues.
ADWcleaner from here
JRT (Junkware Removal Tool) from here
RogueKiller from here
Norton Power Eraser from here
Malwarebytes from here
SuperAntiSpyware from here
Ccleaner from here
TFC.exe (Temporary Files Cleaner) from here
ESET Online Scanner from here
Eset online scanner is a bit different than the others in that you need to either use
IE or download and run their smart installer if you're using another browser. Then tick
the radio button that says "Enable detection of potentiall unwanted application"
Then click the link that says "Advanced settings", then check all the boxes except the
one that mentions "Use custom proxy settings", unless of course you're using a Proxy
Server. Then just click "Start", it will do a thorough system scan so it takes a long
I don't check the links above everyday, so if you have any problem with any one of them then just Google for the program name but use the site names that I have recommended since I'm relatively certain they are free of extraneous garbage.
