When we apply proxy settings in group policy, they only apply to machines not running IE7. We have a windows 2000 domain with 300 xp clients. Some of the clients have IE6 and some have IE7. The domain controller is win2k3. I saw one thing that you had to do for IE7 that we did: disable the "Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user)", but the IE7 clients are still not getting the settings. Please help us figure this out.
