Proxy Server Group Policy not updating to one laptop

I have a notebook which is a member of our Domain that is not picking up the Proxy Server Group Policy.

When i do a "gpresult" it states that it is picking up the GPO but when looking in the registry it is missing settings and even has the proxy switched off.

I've tried "gpupdate /force" which doesn't make any difference; i've tried manually changing all the proxy settings but as soon as the laptop reboots and complies to the GPO it resets all the settings again.

I have also tried recreating the users profile on the notebook and logging in a different user.  I get the same error each time.

This is a big problem as without correct proxy settings the user has full unrestricted Internet Access, and will not be able to access the Internet at all when working from home on remote access.

Any ideas?

I have had similar problems.Nightmare!
I would look at the local administrator proxy settings and I bet it is blank. Type in the proxy address, then logo as a user and you'll see the proxy settings you want. You don't use folder redirection by any chance? It's a known issue with some systems and mine's one of them. Haven't managed to solve it. so if you have the time to suss it out. let me know.

We have just released that all users on the domain have unrestricted Internet Access.
It looks like our Group Policy is in the wrong order, so the GPO gets put on and then taken off.
Resolved :)
