We have 300 or so computers that had the proxy settings wiped out with an update.  We need a vbs script that will enable the use proxy, set the ip for the proxy server and set the port number.  We are doing this on Windows XP sp3 and I believe IE 6.

Hi, I think this VBS code as a logon script should do the job:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable", 1, "REG_DWORD"
objShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer", "192.168.10.1:8080", "REG_SZ"

Regards,

Rob.
