Defult registry for IE

A while back, I IE proxy server to 127.0.0.1 so people couldn't get on the internet.  Now I would like to change it back, and I set the ProxyEnable = 0, ProxyOverride = *.local, but it still seems to be looking for 127.0.0.1:80.  Is there another entry that controls the proxy for IE?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

The proxy address is defined by the "ProxyServer" key (REG_SZ)

check also the local machine config: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

According to that you are using the correct key, although you may want to verify the values and keys in that article with your settings to verify.

 Are these pc's on a domain, are there any Group policy settings in place?

Yes, they are on a Domain and GP are in place, which is where I am putting the values.

If you are using Group Policy make check Computer policy, you can define the internet explorer settings per Computer

I set the ProxyOverride = <local>.  Should the value ProxyServer be set to anything, or is this not needed because the proxy is diabled?

Shouldn't be needed if you are turning proxy off.

You can also run rsop.msc on a client machine and see if you have a GP setting internet explorer settings that are overriding what you are trying to do.

Start = > Run = > RSOP.MSC

Okay, Its fixed now, I didn't realize I had a proxy override in the GP on the server side in addition to the registry entry.

So my 2 responses pointing you to the Group policy didn't help at all? :)  As long as it is working.

Figured out the real reason why it wasn't working.  GP assisted.

They did.  But the issue was located in the GP where the Internet Connection is, not the GP them selfs.
