Remove 8080 proxy setting malware virus - Confirmed Fix

Got this virus and tried tons of approaches and softwares, finally the below fix worked for me.

Download  and run the ''malwarebytes'' software. As you will be fixing this issue in a single run the provided free trial version is enough. It took me around a hour to run the scan and quarantine.After which a reboot resolved by issue.

The bug did not affect the Firefox browser, I went to the browser option Advanced-Network-Connection settings page of the firefox browser and set checked the ''No Proxy'' checkbox and saved after which the virus did not affect by firefox browser. Using this I downloaded the malwarebytes software.

I found this fix from courtesy of below youtube link:
