Specs: Windows 7
Every time that I un-check "Use proxy server..." under LAN settings, it reverts to being checked after about a minute or so.

Although MWB is not exhaustive it is a pretty good indication that your issue is not malware related.

Makes me wonder if your normal account is corrupted.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

When did you last scan it for malware?

A couple of hours ago. That was one of the first things that I tried.

I have also tried changing it as Admin using the Elevated Command Prompt.

See if you can run MalwareBytes on it, just as a rough check for malware:
http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...
(see green button top right).

If that's not possible use another computer to save the download onto a flash drive then on this computer double click the download file to install it.

If it finds anything at all please copy/paste the log on here if at all possible.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

ETA:

I checked the settings with the Admin account (as opposed to the "normal" account that I actually use), and it is defaulting to the proxy server being off.

That may be it.

I set up a new user account, and it seems to be fine.
