    Really? because here it just uses IE to render the page and uses it's settings.

    I always thought that explorer followed the proxy settings as defined in IE. Is that locked via group policy?

    i also thought it should pick the proxy that IE had but for some reason it does not, i tested a few pages with IE and there were blocked but when i tested then with explorer the worked fine.

    Re: how to set proxy for explorer.exe

    Does the proxycfg (run in dos) setting have any bearing on this?

    It tells me I'm not going through a proxy too but my explorer.exe does follow the IE settings for our proxy.

    Re: how to set proxy for explorer.exe

    Maybe they installed a different browser and then set that as default which changed the proxy? :?

    We have typing any address in the address bar disabled, this is achieved via GPO.
