I need a script whcih can disable the proxy server and enable auto detect settings for IE. I can't use GPO as there is not the facility to do this in our environment.

I need this to be the setting regardless of what is currently set on the PC.

Thanks for your help.

You can include following three lines inside a script to disable proxy settings and enable Automatically detect settings in IE

:: BATCH CODE START
Reg Add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyEnable /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

REG DELETE "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections" /v SavedLegacySettings /f

REG DELETE "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections" /v DefaultConnectionSettings /f
:: BATCH CODE START

Hope this helps!
