Question by : If I turn off proxy settings will my internet be vulnerable?

I turned off proxy settings and boom everything worked. Once i tried going on internet explorer, a malware appeared and I removed it. What does a proxy even do? And should I put it back on and just keep using firefox?

Malware will change your setting, to use a proxy. So in less you need a proxy to connect to the internet you should not be using one. You also should get Malwarebytes anti-malware from download.com and run a scan make sure you removed all of the malware.
