Did you turn it on, or do you use Windows / IE?

"WPAD is enabled by default on all Microsoft Windows operating systems and Internet Explorer browsers. WPAD is supported
but not enabled by default on Mac and Linux-based operating systems, as well as, Safari, Chrome, and Firefox browsers."

For IE you can turn it off by visiting Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings > Automatically Detect Settings

Hope that helps.
