We just began using a proxy server and some users are seeing multiple popups asking for username and password. So in troubleshooting this I was thinking it would be nice to have a tool to show a users IE settings.

So I'm wondering if there is a way to remotely see an end user's IE settings. Using the command line if possible. Maybe using psexec?

I tried running this vbs script with psexec on a remote box. It works but does not show the logged in user's settings, it shows my domain admin settings.
strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2\Applications\MicrosoftIE")

 Set colIESettings = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from MicrosoftIE_LANSettings")

 For Each strIESetting in colIESettings

 Wscript.Echo "Autoconfiguration proxy: " & strIESetting.AutoConfigProxy

 Wscript.Echo "Autoconfiguration URL: " & strIESetting.AutoConfigURL

 Wscript.Echo "Autoconfiguration Proxy detection mode: " & strIESetting.AutoProxyDetectMode

 Wscript.Echo "Proxy: " & strIESetting.Proxy

 Wscript.Echo "Proxy override: " & strIESetting.ProxyOverride

 Wscript.Echo "Proxy server: " & strIESetting.ProxyServer

PSExec would have to be launched with the target user's credentials....

If you are parsing the username, and password in the psexec cmd, then it will load that user's profile.....
