We've rolled some PCs back to IE6 and they no longer seem to pick up the Automatic Browwer Config settings we set in Group Policy.  IE7 pcs are fine but we need to manually point IE6 to our PAC file
Any ideas?

Cheers

Can you copy and paste the PAC file URL into the Internet Options > Connections tab > LAN settings > Automatic configuration script? Or do I not understand your situation?

kswan_expert,

1. Disable Addons.  If you have Windows XP SP2, go to Tools > Add-on Manager, and uncheck the addons.

If using Windows XP SP1 or earlier, disable third party extensions. With IE open, go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced. Uncheck "Third party extensions". Click Ok. Reboot computer.

2. Clear your cache.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > General tab.  Under Temporary Internet Files, click "Delete Files" button. Click OK.

3. Reset IE settings.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs.  Click on "Reset Web Settings" button. Go to Advanced tab and click "Restore Defaults" button. Go to Security tab and move the bar to Medium or Default. Click OK. Close all browsers. Reboot the computer.

4. Check if a program running in the background is interfering with Internet Explorer. Temporarily disable antivirus, firewall, antispyware, ad-blocker, popup blocker, and all Norton programs.

5. Repair or reinstall Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP

yep, we can copy the URL in but don't want to have to do this.

Oh, I see. It's more than one PC. Never mind, then. I don't know anything about changing settings on multiple PCs.

Something is interfering with IE or a file in IE is corrupt. Try the possible solutions that I posted above.
