Display a users IE settings

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
 Next

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.....
