Did not have a problem with Internet Explorer 7.  but since updating to IE8, the proxy setting that needs to be turned on for our business is unchecked for IE.  The user can not access the internet until the proxy box is checked.  It happens on this computer only no matter who logs on.  the user does not want to revert back to IE 7.

This is on a Windows XP professional PC.

Have you reset IE8 to defaults to remove all toolbars and excess software that's linked to it, then tried again?

Do you have a group policy enabled to force this setting?

If so, and it is not applying, try running:

gpupdate /force

on their machine

I have tried removing excess toolbars and resetting the defaults in IE8.  That did not solve the problem.  This machine is using Group Policy and when I run gpupdate /force the proxy setting is turned back on.  But then when I log off or shutdown the computer and log back in the proxy setting is turned off again.

Enabling the proxy setting can be done from Internet options of IE8 as well as running the gpupdate but it still has to be done everytime someone logs into the machine.

I have also taken the PC off of the network and then put it back onto the network and I am getting the same results.
