Proxy settings not applying from GP, error in brndlog.txt

I am having trouble getting new proxy settings to apply on some computers in our organisation. I am not sure exactly how proxy settings have been applied in the past, but for some reason, the old settings are not being replaced. The policy is attempting to use internet explorer maintenance settings to set the new proxy. I have tried the setting in group policy Process even if the Group Policy objects have not changed but this has not helped. Looking at brndlog.txt, on affected clients I am getting the error ! Processing of this Wininet.dll connection settings failed. I have googled that without much success. I have run gpupdate /force & restarted. RSOP.msc does not show any errors and as far as it is concerned the proxy is applying OK. If any one can give a pointer, I would be grateful. My only fix so far is to move the user from the particular OU with the policy, move it to a unrestricted OU alter the settings manually and then put the user back again - this has worked on 3 + occasions.

To add to that, today I have tried adding the registry entries for the new proxy server manualy - this works and IE uses the new proxy, but when I do a gpupdate /force, it puts back the old proxy settings, despite the fact that rsop.msc says it is successfully applying the new proxy :-/ - I cant work out where these old settings are coming from.

Think I might be there now.....the above led me to belive that maybe the IE maintenance policy wasnt refresshing properly on computers.....another rsop confirmed this, I had set it on the wrong OU. Corrected this mistake and I have just done a gpupdate on affected machines - they now have the correct settings, I want them to do a restart just to confirm it, but it looks like this was the problem. Apologies for wasting anyones time - school boy error ! I will close this when its confirmed fixed.
