Making a Group Policy to enable Proxy settings when user logs on to domain

Here is what I'm trying to do.  We are trying to get Internet Filtering enabled.  We are looking to purchase this program that is set up as a proxy.  So we need to set up Internet Explorer to go through a proxy.  I don't really want to go to every branch office to manually set up internet explorer going through a proxy so I figured there has to be a Group Policy or even a login script that would be able to do what I want to do.  I just want the login script or group policy(don't know what one would be better) to automatically config Internet Explorer to route through a proxy also for security reason I want to find out if I could do a reg edit over the domain so they won't be able to get into the internet tools to go around the proxy.  I'm running a Windows 2003 domain with about 95 client computers ranging from win98 up to winXP.  If you need anymore info then let me know

In the GP for the users go to User Configuration > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance >Connection > Proxy Settings

Also, under User Configuration>Administrative Templates> Internet Explorer
There are options to block users from changing settings
