(I am using a 11" MacBook Air, Early 2015, provided by my school)
There is software hard-installed on my computer that automatically enables a proxy (under "System Preferences..." -> "Network" -> "Advanced" -> "Proxies") about every 5 minutes which inadvertently breaks a lot of services like the app store, simply uploading images to imgur, using lightshot at all, a lot of games I play from launching, etc. etc. I am able to use these services for just a few minutes right after I disable the proxy but pretty soon the hard-installed software enables the proxy itself again. I was wondering if there is literally any way around this. Maybe my own program that keeps the proxy disabled, counterproductive to the proxy enabler.
If I am being confusing, let me explain what I go through:
- I go to do something (play a game, download an app, etc.)
- It is not working.
- I click on the apple logo, then choose: "System Preferences..." -> "Network" -> "Advanced" -> "Proxies"
- I notice "Automatic Proxy Configuration" is enabled, with an address (to a .pac proxy I guess) put in.
- I simply uncheck "Automatic Proxy Configuration".
- I click OK, and "Apply".
- I am able to access the software now. (play a game, or download an app, etc.)
- Soon, usually just a few minutes, the proxy is magically enabled (checkbox is checked) again.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
