I have been asked to find a away to prevent people changing their proxy settings. We have the proxy server set by GPO and this also removes the connection tab from IE, however the issue we have is not with normal users, its all the IT staff who are also local admins of the machines keep changing the setting in the registry to restore the connections tab and then removing the proxy, sadly we are on a large public network where we cannot lock down the firewall to only allow web traffic outbound to the proxy server.

Looking at GPO's i cant find away of managing HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

Is there any way we can audit or lock this down?
