Unable to change Internet Explorer proxy settings

Last Modified: 2013-12-19
I have inherited a Windows 2000 Server configured as a domain server.  There was a previous proxy server in place that is no longer in use.  Internet Explorer automatically configures itself, no matter the user, with proxy settings that can NOT be changed.

I have looked at local and network policies via poledit.exe and gpedit.msc, plus everywhere else I can think of, to no avail.

Even logged on as the domain admin, I can not change the proxy settings.  They are just greyed out.

How can I get this fixed?

All info is greatly appreciated.
