Thanks to all of you for the clarification. I conclude that there is nothing
harmful on my machine that makes my machine access www.wpad.net. I got
little suspicious because I am using Firefox and inspite of automatic proxy
selection being disabled (Its disabled in IE as well along with firefox) my
machine was trying to access wpad.net.
Don't know why inspite of proxy autodiscovery disabled my machine was
looking for www.wpad.net (Maybe I know. Might be because even though my
machine is not part of any home/office network I have set the DNS suffix as
"net". Actually the problem started only after I did the previous step. I
knew what I was doing was not right but I was playing around.)
Anyways now I know what the issue is.
