    Proxy settings not there on second logon.

    I'm not sure whether this is an LNM problem - or a pc image problem but here's the scenario:

    - Mini-towers with XP Pro SP1 logon to the server GPO invokes - my documents redirected fine, the internet works.

    - 1st user logs off - 2nd users logs on and everything works fine but - the proxy settings and the homepage are gone - so no 'net access. If the PC reboots the first user to log on can browse the net fine.

    All desktop PCs with different hardware work fine everytime. I guess I'm answering my own question and it is an image issue - but has anyone come accross this before? Is there a fix so I don't have to re-image all the towers?

    - tried upgrade to service pack 2 - no joy
    - there is the possibility they were upgraded from XP Home Edition

    One last note - the towers did not have this problem when logging on to the old (now departed) server (server 2000).

    Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

    Are you redirecting the application data folder?

    I fixed it by putting this vbscript in startup on the profile (works a treat):

    set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    ' Proxy Settings
    WSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer", "10.0.0.2:8080"
    WSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable", 1, "REG_DWORD"
    WSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyOverride", "10.0.0.*;intranet.*;"

    Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    ' Home Page URL
    StartPage = "http://www.google.co.uk"
    WSHShell.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage
    WSHShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage

    Oh hold on a second... it could just be that you haven't set the proxy as per machine instead of per user so each user account was being considered seperate and thus empty.

    Either way you got a fix that worked so all good..

    Equally you could use that method to block access when you wanted

    I use a group policy for those logging onto the network. See Internet Explorer settings.
