In IE, if you go to tools> connections tab> Lan Settings - there's a flag at the bottom called "use a proxy server for your LAN .......) Is there a way in VBScript to turn that flag off?

Sure. The code below will turn it off.

Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable", 1, "REG_SZ"

Open in new window

doesn't seem to work. I've found that key in the registry and it looks like the value is actually "0" to turn it off. But the code doesn't seem to be doing anything??
Any ideas?

Once you restart your browser, the change should take place.

figured it out, had to change a couple of settings in your code, but got it working, thanks mucho. Working code is attached.
points are yours though as I wouldn't of had a clue where to start otherwise.
Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable", 0, "REG_DWORD"
