  1. Disabling proxy with PowerShell doesn't work, how can I achieve this?


    I am uninstalling an application which due to a bug sometimes enables the Windows Proxy setting in Windows 10. The PCs are distributed globally so I need to schedule a task to trigger after the uninstall (in case proxy gets enabled and network connection is lost) to check if the proxy is enabled then turn it off.

    I have run the PowerShell code below to edit the registry while testing, and have found no other method to achieve this.

    I have made sure all browsers are closed, I have refreshed services, and I have power cycled the machine.

    Set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings' -name ProxyServer -Value ""
    Set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings' -name ProxyEnable -Value 0

    I have confirmed that the registry setting reflects the changes above, but the GUI (through Settings or through Internet Explorer) still shows the proxy enabled and the network connection remains down unless I manually uncheck the box.

    Where are these proxy settings actually stored, there must be some other place besides the registry value that everyone refers to. When I set a value for a fake proxy and port, these setting remain in the GUI whether enabled or disabled until changed, but the registry settings are never updated to those values. These settings MUST reside elsewhere. Anyone know where?

    :)

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.


    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

  3. Double Tap doesn`t work on Lumia 620

    Hello,

    Double Tap to wake doesn`t work at my Lumia 620. I have all on in settings but still doesn`t work. I`m pretty sure that in update AMBER or BLACK this function works properly. But after DENIM update doesn`t. Maybe you are planning some update for this future
    ?

    Thanks
