Just to clarify there, you've checked the local policy settings on that laptop using gpedit.msc yes?

Yes I've checked local policy settings (using gpedit) and its only IE proxy settings.

It could be a local profile issue. The first thing I would try is -

Log on as a local administrator of the machine.

Rename the folder c:\Documents and Settings\<ProblemUserID> to something like <ProblemUserID_old>

Log off, and then log back on as the problem user.

Copy any important docs etc from the profile you renamed (such as the contents of My Docs, Desktop etc) into the newly built profile (the new profile will have been created when you logged back on as the problem user).

Change the proxy settings, and see if they stick this time - There's a good chance they will.

Let me know if that helps! :)
