Unhide Connection Tab at home

Hi Guys
In my company we have a GPO that forces the use of our Proxy Server and then hides the connection tab so the users can't use it.
This is fine untill someone takes their laptop hom and then can't get on the interenet as their browser is still looking for our proxy.

Is there something similar to a hardware profile I could get hte user to choose where it would switch it off for them?
Or are there any other ideas?

Much appeciated

You could run the below code in a logoff script which will set the proxy back to none
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
