    Windows 10, why is my proxy service being turned on, why is Microsoft Store slow to load or...


    I had to share this info.


    After digging deep off and on for several weeks I figured out the solution to these issues. They appeared to work for me anyway. I hope they will work for you. I won't go into all the maybe's and possible causes but I found I had 2 separate programs apps that were causing my issues. The first issue was causing the second. Malware Bytes had a switch in the preferences/settings that forced itself to use a proxy service. If the switch was on the system would turn the service on. I turned it off. Had another program. Video Downloader Ultimate that turns it on. I set that program to always be off unless I want to use it. It does turn the proxy service on. Now that I know that, I just need to remember to go into the settings and turn the proxy service off when I am done using it.


    While the proxy service is on my system showed many of the symptoms of the "can't connect to the Microsoft Store app issue." Most of the well intended answers I've seen for this never mention, "check your proxy setting" You might have an app or two that is turning it on. If that be the case, deal with it the best you see fit. Remove the app, make sure the preferences are not affecting it. Or try another way.


    I'm posting this to share what worked for me! Good luck!

    :)

    Let us try few of the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Windows Store apps won't work properly if you are using a proxy server. You may disable the proxy server and check.

    Follow the below steps.

      tab.
    • c. Click on the LAN Settings button.
    • Then uncheck the option Use a proxy server for your LAN.
    • Click Apply.

    Step 2: I suggest you to try to start the Windows Store service and set it up as Automatic and check if it helps.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows + R to open Run
      command, type Services.msc and press
      Enter.
    • Search for Windows Store service, right click on it and
      start the service.
    • Also, set the Startup type to Automatic.
    • Now check if you are able to log-in.

    Step 3: I suggest you to run the
    Windows Store Apps
    troubleshooter.

    Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter,
    troubleshoots problems that may prevent Windows Store Apps from working correctly.

  3. Windows Cannot Detect Network Proxy (Apps Only)

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Turn off Use a proxy server.

    To do that,

    1. Type ‘Change proxy settings’ in the Windows search bar.
    2. Under ‘Use a proxy server’, toggle the switch ‘Off’.
