Can not access the Internet?

On our network we have different systems in use to get connected.  On some of the slower systems [computers that have just got reimaged]  are having problems accessing the interent when some users logon to them.

seems as if its not pulling the right update for that user.  How do I retrieve that Policy manually?  Its the proxy update?

I have tried.
removing it and joining it to the domain.
gpupdate /force
reimaging it
updating internet explorer
deleting the profile off of the computer [registry key + user profile] relogging in

some of you might say put in the proxy.
How do i find the proxy on the user account that it works for?
is there a way to see what policy the working user pulled that the non user didnt?

There was a group that higher created that i guess pushed out that update.  but even if added to it the users can't access the internet.

NOTE everything else works i.e. email access to share drives.
windows xp sp3 + server 2003

Are you running a managed anti-virus program - like SEP11?

If so, there may be a duplicate entry in the console for the newly reimaged machines if they used the same name.  Delete any duplicates and they should pickup the right settings.

Computer were newly imaged.  The connectivity to the servers was slow.

So I removed Mcafee EnterpriseAgent [old] and left the Mcafee agent the internet started to work.
