Hi Experts,

In an environment we have a legacy GPO that has an automatic configuration script defined in Internet explorer maintenance.

In this same environment, we created a new GPO that uses group policy preferences to set the proxy settings.

In this configuration, it takes a user to log on twice before the GPO with the group policy preferences takes precedence.

Note: IEM is not in preference mode.  See technet article below.

So today we removed the automatic configuration from the legacy GPO and there was a couple of issues

users still had to log in twice
the proxy settings check box for internet explorer proxy settings kept un-checking itself

any ideas?

I didn't reset the configuration in IEM when editing the GPO.

Is that a requirement?
