Group Policy Setting to lockout Proxy Settings in IE8

I am runing a Windows 2003 server environmnet.  I have found how to set the proxy using GPO on a per user basis.  I cannot find how to prevent the users from changing the proxy.  I found several articles that said to look under User, Admin Templates, IE.  My GPO editor does not have IE as an option under Admin Templates.

If you cant see the IE admin template you need to import it.


Edit your GPO, under Admin Templates Right ans select Add/Remove Templates, you need to import  INETRES admin template, after that you could setup the IExplorer settings.
