     Here's a proxy changer that allows you to set or disable a proxy without having to restart IE. All the code I have found so far here on pscode about setting a proxy requires you to restart IE. The code is converted from the C++ code on http://www.codeproject.com/internet/changeproxy1.asp I didn't convert it, but I made a few small changes, because there was a flaw in releasing the memory, which made it crash the second time the proxy was set or disabled. No proxy lists have been included, because free proxies only work for several hours/days. Google is your friend ;) Only tested on Windows XP.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
