In other words i would like to know if "SyncMode5" exists in the following path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" using vbscript.

Hi, this should work for you.

Regards,

Rob,

strValue = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\SynMode5"
strData = CheckRegValue(strValue)
WScript.Echo strData

strValue = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable"
strData = CheckRegValue(strValue)
WScript.Echo strData

Function CheckRegValue(strRegPath)
	Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
	strReturn = "<NOT FOUND>"
	On Error Resume Next
	strReturn = objShell.RegRead(strRegPath)
	Err.Clear
	On Error GoTo 0
	CheckRegValue = strReturn
End Function
