IE7 http:/// address not valid - domain user on XP

Domain user gets this error in IE7.

Other users on same PC - works fine.
This user on another PC - works fine.

Its just this user on this PC. Tried IE7 reset - no joy.

Any ideas?

Was thinking of deleting or renaming profile on this PC and forcing it to recreate?

Could you try Click on IE control panel

Internet Options->connect tab->Lan Setting->check automatic detect and uncheck any proxy setting

Close IE ad Reboot and Re-open IE

Similarly a fellow here

fixed the problem but again access to proxy server settings was needed.

To fix you may have to change the GPO to allow access to proxy server settings.

Still no joy. Tried the above.

Tried gpupdate /force. Completed deleted users profile. Still the same.

Spookily, I've tried logging in with two other users also. One works the 2nd displays the same.

Wondering whether a complete rebuild is worthwhile.

A Repair Install is much easier to recover from.  Personal data and installed programs should not be affected.

It is always a good idea to do a backup first.
