Grou Policy results showing an entry I cannot find in Group Policies

Ok so when I run gpresult /z I get the following (I removed all non pertinent information so this is a partial result)

My question is: at the bottom it shows atlas.abc.etc..  - where is this coming from?  Its NOT in my group policies and if it is, I cant find it anywhere.

Any more information you may need to solve this, please ask.

From the output of gpresult the policy is called

Internet Explorer Connection

Have you a policy on the server or client by that name?

In that policy drill into User Config - Policies - Windows Settings - Internet Explorer Maintenance

Look in Proxy Settings in there...that's where those settings normally live

Sounds like the local security policy of the machine you ran the command on.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

 - where in LSP would I find this?

I dont see IE Maint in local security policies.

Do you or did you have a machine on the network called 'atlas' at any stage?

@smc- thats not a policy name, remember I removed a bunch of un-necessary information.  Internet Explorer Connection is not the name of a policy (never was), thats the sub section of whatever policy.

@smc - YES there was an atlas machine at one point many moons ago.

You removed information? There's no reason to remove information from the output of gpresult, we need to see whatever it reports to help you...this is all internal information, nothing that we(or anyone) can use if you are worried about posting info online...

The output shows that this policy(whatever it was called) was not applied...so can you tell us what the name was? The bit you removed I mean?

In that policy drill into where I said and you should see what is needed...

Or, someone created a local policy to utilize the former 'atlas' machine as a proxy for some reason...is my other guess

ok here is the whole output

And - that info is NOT IN ANY POLICY THAT EXISTS thats why I am asking.

Ok, one other place this could be set...in the Preferences section...

Have you checked in Default Domain Policy under

User Config - Preferences - Control Panel Settings - Internet Settings - anything set in there?

The output you've provided is very detailed - can you instead post result of
gpresult /v

I see there are a number of policies, you may need to check each one...or provide output from /v above and we can narrow this down another bit...

Ok found it.  This is weird.  In User Config - Policies - Windows Settings - Internet Explorer Maintenance - Enable Proxy was NOT checked making all the boxes greyed out.  But just for S+G's I clicked ENABLE proxy settings and there it was in all the boxes.  I erased it, and then UNCHECKED Enable proxy.

So even though Enable proxy was NOT checked and NOT in use.  It was still showing up!!! Must be a bug in GPO or something.  It didnt show up there until I checked Enable which makes no sense at all!!

Ultimately it was my clicking a box for no reason that found the issue.  I am offering partial credit to SMC since he was kind enough to participate.
