Does anybody's machine also tries to access www.wpad.net. I use dial up to
connect to internet and the moment I connect to internet my firewall shows
that svchost is trying to access www.wpad.net. I tried visiting
www.wpad.netwebsite and the owner of the site says that it is due to
some microsoft bug
related to Web Proxy Discovery Protocol (WPAD).

There is also a link (which I also found in other places after some
googling) of a wpad (Web Proxy Auto Discovery Protocol) draft which is
drafted by microsoft (That is what the website says).

Has anyone else faced this issue or my machine has some unwanted material.
