Basically you can start setup.exe with direct connection (the default),
IE proxy settings or by telling it the proxy host and port.  If you have
no connection either way, then it's hard to see why only setup.exe
wouldn't connect unless you have more malware on the computer, or it's
blocked by the firewall or some similar software.

You didn't reboot after removing the malware via autoruns?  Then it
might still be active for already running processes.
