This is a good question, since there are different types of proxies.
You can set Internet Explorer to work with a proxy, of which there are
thousands available as you say, but it should be possible to disable this
feature- possibly disabling the 'Winhttp Web Proxy Auto discovery service'
may help there via services.msc - or if that's not it then there is probably
some other settting that will disable it.
What would be harder to disable though would be websites that simply take
your request and then present you with the website. I don't know how you
could disable those completely, other than blocking those particular sites -
BUT there are fewer of them, so you could probably dispense with 90% of them
by blocking those particular sites.
Someone else better qualified in this area may have a better solution.
