Is this a domain machine or a stand alone machine?? If it is a domain machine then you will most probably have policies that reset this setting to a default setting.. Consult with your network admin if so (or check the policies if you are the admin to check and see what happens there).

If you're not using a domain connected machine i'd say you have a faulty profile.. These settings are saved within your profile and after rebooting if the setting isn;t saved that might be a good idea to look into..

What happens if you go to Control Panel --> Internet Options and set the Proxy there?? What happens if you've changed it and closed it and go back there? Is the setting still changed then or is it the default one?

If this is Vista, you need to run IE in Administrator mode (right click > Run as Administrator).
