Web Content Filtering via Active Directory config issues

I have read you can do web content filtering through active directory.  I would first like to know where there is configured within the group policy in AD and only allow certain sites.

Secondly I have read solutions where I can go into IE/Internet Options/Connection on the workstations and put the proxy server to 127.0.0.1 and add the sites I permit below the setting.  This worked to a point but the problem lies when going to sites wihin say yahoo.com or google.com for map lookup etc.  An example would be I allow yahoo.com and maps.yahoo,com it still presents the password box and I can click cancel and still do my search which is annoying for the users.  It would be nice if it accepted wildcards but it doesn't.

Please advise of what I should do.

It does exactly if you read it closely.  You can add wildcards to the list too.  Hove you even tried the solution?

Registry File (prxenable.reg):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"MigrateProxy"=dword:00000001
"ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
"ProxyServer"="http://127.0.0.1:80"
"ProxyOverride"="somelocalsite.domain.local;*.macromedia.com"   <-- this allows exceptions!

Would allow your proxy to block all but allow anything .macromedia.com

How does this not answer your question?

Makes sense but beyond my knowledge to deploy this.  I am a beginner in AD, scripts and registry but thank you
