I have a VBScript to turn off the proxy and it works fine, but I need to turn it off on multiple machines...........any help would be appreciated.

This is a copy of my script
Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
'rem WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer", "10.80.2.5:3128", "REG_SZ"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable", 0, "REG_DWORD"
'rem WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyHttp1.1", 1, "REG_DWORD"

You should use the
    WshRemote Object

You'll save that script of your into a file, then use another script to run it on multiple computers.

Hi,

HKCU - Is user registry and the registry setting you have is for the user based and not machine based?

You can use a login script to do this

Do you already use login script if so you can create a group and then put all the users whom you want the proxy removed?

Let me know if you want the login script modified?
