Where is the registry setting for "Automatically detect settings" for Internet Explorer 7?

In IE7 under Tools-->Internet Options-->Connections tab-->LAN settings button, there is a check box called "Automatically detect settings". I want to find the registry setting that will allow me to check or uncheck this. Does anyone know where this is located? I Googled this and could only find out how to enable or disable (gray it out). Thank You.

Look in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections


Setting of 1 in hex should do it...

Thanks, that is the correct key, however, I found out that it was the 9th hex entry that controls "automatically detect settings" checkbox.
