Here's what I'm trying to do:  
Launch IE --> Tools --> Internet Options --> Connections --> LAN settings --> Advanced

I enter an IP address in the "Exceptions" textbox which is NOT retained when I go back to this menu.
What could be stopping the entry I made from being retained???

Good suggestion Pete, I went in there to hardcode the exception address I wanted.  It retains it, but as soon as I logoff and back on.  It's gone

Then you are either - not logged in as an administrator, OR theres a group policy over-riding it (speak to IT) or theres something resetting the registry at login (I.e. a logon script)

By the way, it's still not resolved (exception entries not retained).  But I know it's related to the Novell login script or Novell Workstation Manager which overwrites the entries.

Thanks Pete

Try removing the novell client reboot and change the entry -see if its retained, at least then you will know for sure :)
