so, idiotically today I downloaded a file and tried installing it not knowing that it's a virus and ever since then my Internet on my computer has been down it took me a while to notice what was the cause but then I found out that the root was because the proxy kept shifting to 127.0.0.1:8080
I tried using adw cleaner and also tried changing registry entries but they didn't help it just kept shifting, can anyone help me fix this please?
I'm I'm deep trouble if I don't fix this...

try a full virus scan and malwarebytes scan, you might also want to check that the hosts file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc (if C is your main drive) to see if it has any strange entries in it, follow this microsoft guide to put it back to normal

Easiest fix is just to reinstall windows. If this isn't an option. Immediately download these.

1. Free Anti-Virus : http://www.pandasecurity.com/usa/homeusers/solutions/free-antivirus/

2. Free Malware Remover: https://www.malwarebytes.com/

3. Install them from windows. I'm not sure if you can install them in safe mode which is the next step.

4. Restart in safe mode by tapping Delete key during windows splash menu / or right after the splash when you see the - - - flashing on the black screen.

5. Once you are in safe mode. Run through a full scan of both Panda and Malwarebytes and that should take care of the problem.

thats all well and good, but each different virus will do something different, do things in its own way, if you know exactly what the virus is called then there will be specific instructions for removing it.

Just in case you're still having the issue, this should definitely help.

Remove Http://127.0.0.1:8080/proxy.pac virus
http://www.2-remove-virus.com/remove-http127-0-0-18080proxy-pac-virus/


Proxy changer and DNS changer are similar and mostly the same tools are used to remove either. If proxy virus removal instructions don't help solve the issue, see if the DNS change removal guide works.

Removal tools:
- McAfee Stinger
- Windows Defender Online
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- Norton Power Eraser

- Avira DNS Repair Tool
- Kaspersky Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller
