Recently, the 'Automatically detect settings' option under internet options>Connections>LAN settings, has been ticked abrubtly within IE on users' side! Users are set to use an automatic configuration script via a GPO applied to their OU, which defines the 'Automatic Browser Configuration' > 'Auto-proxy' to use a proxy.pac file.
However, lately the Automatically detect settings is ticked everytime the user restarts his/her PC, policy refreshes, or being forced, which is causing slow browsing especially on the local websites (Intranet).
My Question is, how to UNTICK the 'Automatically detect settings' option via a GPO so that all users' IEs are affected??
P.S. 1) I have read about modifying registry settings and pushing it to users via GPO and so on but am looking for the option within the GPMC without having to modify/import registry, use batch file, script, etc...
P.S. 2) The 'Automatically detect configuration settings' option, under User Configuration>Windows Settings>Internet Explorer Maintenance>Connection>Automatic Broser Configuration, is UNTICKED in my existing GPO. Does it have to do with the 'Automatically detect settings' option in IE ?
