gpo applies but doesn't update registry

Hi I've encountered a bit of strange problem.  I have GPO for IE11 but it no longer seems to be updating the registry.  i can see that the gpo is applied by running gpresult but IE is not configured correctly (e.g. no proxy settings) and looking at the GPO in question it is meant to update the following registry key:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

But there are no settings for the proxy in there.

I think it shouldn't... the GPO and registry are merged, however don't think it go written down in the registry but kept in session memory ?.  I'm not pretty sure, maybe someone else could assert this.

I should be able to see the settings applied from the GPO, like the proxy settings in IE but they are not there

I think so too, but not the registry changed... I can't now, but I'll make some tests in my domain tomorrow.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

OK.  My GPO allows me to setup a GPO for IE 5,6, IE7, IE8,9 and IE10, however I have a IE11 and can see half of the config forced by GPO.  I can see the checkbox "Use proxy" enabled but no proxy indicated where according to GPO settings it is specified.

And from your original question, I see it activated using regedt32 into HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

What IE are you using and specifying into the GPO?

From my understanding of GP's all setting altered are registry manipulations which you should be able to see..

Have you tried to set the Proxy on the Computer preference and not user

compdigit44 gave some instructions to try to identify the problem.  In my opinion it was a good tip however no feedback was given.
