    Got it working by redoing the gpp

    Something about if you click on the advanced tab it messes things up

    If anyone needs to set the homepage just create another Registry item for the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main and a REG_SZ value named Start Page then specify your homepage, works a treat

    Man I'm stupid, and I'm having a hard time making this work with a pac file for my school district. Can anyone help me out with some baby steps for this? I'm running server2008r2 (I've unistalled ie10 on it) and I need my workstations win7 and win8 to pickup my pac file through group policy. I've tried doing the things mentioned on this thread, but I probably didn't do things correctly. I have verified that the policy is flowing to the workstations via gpresult. I'm banging my head here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. This is a useful thread with a good workaround. I was hoping I wasn't going to have to rely on a script to do this so GPP is a good compromise.

    Thank you very much for this, we were scratching our heads as to why the students were getting certificate errors in both Internet Explorer and Chrome but only in certain rooms then it clicked they were generally new PCs or reimaged PCs which obviously had IE10 installed.

    Then it clicked that our firewall does weird things in an attempt to block the Internet access if the proxy is turned off and it clicked that they probably weren't getting the proxy settings. And of course Chrome uses the proxy settings from Internet Explorer!

    I have found a slight problem.

    Since the proxy settings are done via registry import Google Chrome doesn't seem to pick them up until Internet Explorer is launched at least once. Minor thing really but is there a solution to that?

    I've encountered this as well as we have IE10 with proxies configured through GPP. I didn't spend a whole lot of time with it and in the end just specified the proxy in the Chrome GPO. Between all the proxy quirks and daily used district websites randomly breaking and I'm trying to push everyone onto Chrome anyways.

    We had this problem. Basically somehow IE 10 got onto our DC, so no IE policies were being applied across the school.
    We found out that a new template is needed to control IE 10 Download Administrative Templates for Windows Internet Explorer 10 from Official Microsoft Download Centre
    It was odd because throughout school we use IE 9 but it seems that having IE 10 on a DC wipes the entire policies relating to internet explorer

    hope this can somehow help!

    Those only work with 2003 DC's

    You can get the 2008 R2 policies from here

    Download Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 from Official Microsoft Download Center
