hi guys,

We've got around 15 PC's on a domain. They are sadly using the Windows 2003 server and are Windows XP machines. Anyway, the main issue we're having here is that whenever I log on and I look at the proxy server settings on I.E, there is an entry for it to go out via an IP and a port. This happens regardless of what profile I create and log on with. The profiles I'm accessing with all have Domain Admin rights.

However, I've run the Gpresult command to see what policies are being applied onto this machine. I check out the policy via the group policy manager and there are absolutely no entries in the Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Internet Explorer Maintenance->Connection->Proxy Settings.

Is there any where else that I should be looking?

Thanks again
