For some reason I have never had luck getting registry keys pushed out in group policy. The server does not have that setting checked so I imported that key from the server into Users / Preferences / Windows Settings / Registry. The box for proxy is still checked after multiple reboots and gpupdate /force

Go to a client change the Registry setting manually then reboot see if this option is now removed.

I have looked in Windows 2008 Server GP the option is there to disable. Under Internet Explorer double check

I believe the option you are referring to disables the user from changing the proxy setting

I exported the key, merged it into the registry and it did uncheck the box. Now I just need to see how to get that to work in a GPO

The problem I seem to be having now is getting the registry key updated through gpo. According to the GPO results, it is applied. The only way I got it to work was to run the regstry key on the workstation. So I know the registry key is correct however it does not update through GPO

I got that registry setting to work. I messed up the GPO when I first tried it. It is working now

Thanks
