Hi,

We are trying to write a GPO or login script that will automatically uncheck the box "automatically detect settings" under Lan Settings on the Connections tab of Internet options.  Ive never used group policy to edit a registry manually before, so a detailed walkthrough or script would be helpful.

Thanks for your help.  We have 2008r2 servers and a Windows 7 client machines.

Hi

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Disable changing Automatic Configuration settings

Either you attach this GPO on the OU where the workstations or on the OU where users are specified. Wait for the GPO to replicate (can take up to 15 minutes) and the option should get grayed out.
