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

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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
