ProxyEnable registry key flips from 1 to 0

I am stumped.

Win2k8 R2 domain
WinXP and Win7 PC's
latest IE admx loaded in sysvol
GPO setting to force proxyenable key to 1.
Sophos Anti-virus installed and uninstalled.
All flavors of IE - 8.9,10,11

Setting gets enabled when they login and periodically when the GPO goes through the refresh.

During the day at random times the ProxyEnable registry key flips from 1 to 0. Could be even while you are using IE. One minute your are reading a page, next minute nada.

If you do a gpupdate or wait for the gp refresh it goes back to 1.

pick a machine where you have this problem and GPO model it. Sounds like conflicting policies.

my money would still be on GPO.

put the pc in a container where no GPO's are applied and test.

Proxy settings are User not Computer in GPO.

Doesn't matter loopback the gpo.

Has to be a gpo issue as you said it corrects after gpupdate /force
