Mcafee Antivirus is unable to catch Proxy Virus Address: http=; https= <

In our Network, we are running windows 10 64 bit.

Recently, I notice that the manual proxy setting is turned on on the settings every time it turns it off I find it turned on again?

and this is the values: 

Address: http=;https= <-loopback>

and our workstation can't open any site without running a VPN like a hotspot shield because of that virus.

whereas, Mcafee Endpoint Security is already installed on all the infected workstations. Mcafee is unable to catch this virus, due to which we are Oppressed to used Zamana Anti Malware software with Mcafee antivirus.  When anyone system is got infected with this proxy virus we run Zamana AntiMalware on this effected system.

This is the temporary solution that we are doing to save our lives and time.

Please help me how can I remove this virus through Mcafee Antivirus.


My Mcafee Endpoint Security Center version.

ePO Build: ePolicy Orchestrator 5.10.0 (Build 2428)
