How to reset the Internet browser proxy configuration:

Malware sometimes changes the proxy server configuration to allow it to redirect your browsing requests. After the malware is removed, the proxy server configuration is not reverted and needs to be reviewed. Usually, no proxy server is used. Please consult your ISP or network administrator if you are unsure.
Here you can find short guides on how to change browser's proxy server configuration. If more browsers are used, be sure to check the proxy server configuration for all of them.
