    Since following the instructions in this thread to try and get IE10 to find the right homepage, I've had loads of problems with computers losing the setting "Bypass proxy server for local addresses"...this box is getting cleared. We have Server 2008 R2 with IE10 installed. Any quick tips welcome!

    My IE10 test PC is working seemingly fine when I test both with students and staff....why is this, when so many others are having problems?

    My GPO settings are shown on the attached

    Michael reg fix (post #23) working for me on win 7 IE10 with server 2008 R2

    Couple of Qs:
    If later some users are moved out of GPO scope will the registry changes be backed out ?
    Is there a way of setting proxy per machine in registry so I could link to OU with computer accounts ?
    Seem to recall you can simulate this with loopback policy ?

    Finally my win 7 machine got updated to IE10 and I found that when using GPMC (via RSAT) the
    Internet Explorer Maintenance (IEM) settings can not be edited in the GPO even though they are still there!

    I went back to IE9 and the IEM settings re-appeared

    Quick way to roll back IE10 to IE9 from admin cmd:
    Code:
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2718695 /quiet /forcerestart
    PS Isn't it nice and quite without the teachers / kids (strike day). Actually getting some stuff done!

    If users are moved out of the scope, the registry entries would remain until they're removed or over written.

    You can set proxy settings per machine, but this is when deploying proxy settings via GPO. Because the regedit is deployed on a HKCU basis the loopback method wouldn't work (to the best of my knowledge).

    When installing IE10 on 2008 R2 or Win 7 + RSAT, you will lose IEM. The only way to get back at those settings is to downgrade to IE9. You can thank Microsoft for this feature!

    How would you do this ?
    A quick google suggested:

    Policy Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user)
    Category Path Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\internet Explorer\
    Supported On At least Internet Explorer 5.0
    Registry Key HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVe rsion\internet Settings
    Value proxySettingsPerUser
    Then add your 3 registry values e.g.
    Action: Update
    Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Key Path: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
    Value Name: ProxyServer
    Default: Unchecked
    Value Type: REG_SZ
    Value Data: 192.168.1.254:8080
    but this time under

    computer configuration\Preferences\Windows Settings\Registry
    And this would still allow a user to untick "use proxy server" in IE LAN settings
    e.g. if they take a laptop off site and need to change / disable the proxy ?

    This works great but its broken our locally hosted VLE

    How do I get the "bypass proxy server for local addresses" check box to be ticked?

    I know I can explicitly bypass it with the name but I would like to bypass all local addresses.

    Only actually rolled out Michael's reg fix (post #23)

    Tested the local machine idea on one PC with regedit e.g.
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
    "ProxySettingsPerUser"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
    "ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
    "ProxyServer"="proxy:port"
    "ProxyOverride"="192.168.0.*;etc;<local>"
    Seems to work but some users have the option to untick the proxy in IE whilst for others
    it is greyed out which is odd?

    Well I was having the issue after all on our IE10 test PC and the GPP Regedit did the trick.

    However when logged on as a test student I notice if they click "About Internet Explorer" there is a tick box in "Install new versions automatically" - that worries me.

    If I try and change it, it asks for admin credentials, but is there anyway to remove the tick centrally by a policy edit?

    Cheers

    A better way is to control updates deployed via WSUS. The "Install new versions automatically" option is then irrelevant.

    Perhaps, but I found a registry tweak to un-tick it anyway...

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "EnableAutoUpgrade"=dword:00000000

    Is it possible to use WMI filtering to only target computers with IE10 or does it not matter pushing these new registry items to computers running IE9 or perhaps 8?

    Regards

    Deploying proxy settings is the same for IE8, IE9, IE10 and IE11 as the same registry keys are used. I believe it's also the same multi-platform i.e. Windows XP, Vista and 7.
