Setup IE Proxy Settings to use Cisco ASA?

I'm removing an old ISA server and was implementing a new ASA 5510. Right now we push out Group Policy settings to so everyone uses the ISA via the Internet Explorer's proxy settings shown in the picture. Unfortunately, if I remove the proxy settings in Internet Explorer our default routing sends everyone out an alternate path to the internet. Instead of taking the time to change all the routing for our locations can I setup the Proxy Settings under IE to go out via the Cisco ASA firewall? If so, what is this called and how may i do this on the ASA? Everything I'm reading says this can't but done. From my experience the ASA is feature rich and has never let me down.

Thank you!

It is simple: You cannot do that. The ASA doesnt have that functionality. You need to have something else operating as a proxy server and point that something out in the proxy settings, or you remove the proxy settings and let the clients access internet directly via the configured default gateway.

I'll change my routers so for all http and ssl trafic that traffic will be sent to the new firewall.
