Cannot change settings after apply group policy

Hi
Done something a bit stupid and cannot appear to put it right.
Used a group policy to force a proxy address for users and enabled cannot change.
i then put the admin username in the group policy so the proxy server is now pointing to itself and not the external proxy address it should redirect to. doh

I have removed the admin user from the group but when i do a gpupdate /force i still cannot access the proxy setttings in internet options, they are still greyed out?

I have checked and i have definatly removed the admin username form the group.
Any suggestions

Would this then allow me to set the proper proxy address afterwards?

Cheers

Yes it should, you couls also try a .reg file to set the details as below
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"ProxyServer"="<your proxy IP address>:8080"
"ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
"ProxyOverride"="<local>"

That key ProxyEnabled is already set to 1 with the wrong proxy in.

just had a play with my settings, i set the ProxyEnable to 0 now the tick has gone from the use proxy but the settings are still filled out and greyed out.  Dont understand why proup policys are not removed.
Maybe i have to add the user back in to the group remove the cannot change settings in group policy, just dont want to make matters worse.

You could try to add it back in the group, change the GP settings then remove them from the group and change back the GP settings.

If the proxy has no tick it should not matter if the address and port are filled in as it will not be using these because the use proxy is not ticked.

Have you tried rebooting?

ok as suggested i added the user (which is the domain admin user) back to the group, removed the cannot change proxy setting, went back onto the server done a gpupdate /force and all was back to normal, ie i could enter the correct proxy settings,  i removed admin again from the group,  added the cannot change proxy settings, logged back onto the server done a gpupdate /all and it added the incorrect proxy again.  
I have not tried restarting i will have to wait till the morning as this is a server.

Reboot did the trick after removing the user from the policy
