Thanks, I'll try that, but where do I enter the false proxy, and what should it be?

Thanks again

you can put it straight under that top key i showed you or

User Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\Connection\ proxy settings

you can put anything in there and as long as its false it will fall over for the user
