What was the last thing you 'installed'?
I would suspect malware of some sort. Proxy settings don't just 'appear'.

From where?
All I'm saying is...I suspect malware.
Malware (and unexpected proxy settings) don't just appear.

From kickasstorrents.
You have malware.
Probably multiple levels of malware.

This is what happens when you pirate software.

Your system is badly compromised.

I have no idea how to fix that, other than to suggest a full wipe and reinstall of everything, starting with the OS.

In any case, Tom's Hardware does not assist with pirated software, or fixing the results of using such pirated software. Other than to suggest a full wipe and reinstall.

Closing this.
