Interesting update with my proxy issues.
I have been having problems with apply my proxy settings in Windows 7 where I can inject the proxy but I.E/Windows 7 does not for love nor money want to tick the the box "Use a Proxy for your LAN".
I have tried:
- Using GPP to add proxy
- Inject registry settings using GPP and batch file
- Use IEM before upgrading to I.E 10 removed this opton
- etc, etc, etc, etc.
None of the options I tried would tick the damn box.
Now when playing around with PowersShell I decided to try and input a different proxy address from the one the LEA supplied us so I just put the proxy as a random IP address, and guess what it put it in and ticked the box, WTF! When I change the PS script back to the LEA proxy, no tick in the box.
I have removed all group policy from applying to the test machine so it's only the proxy GPO applied and I get the same result.
Crazy, can anyone shed any light on how or why this may happen? (All machines and servers are updated)

There's nothing set in the Default Domain Policy is there?
Try creating a new OU and block Policy Inheritance. Move a user and computer object into this OU. If this works, then it's most likely a conflicting GPO somewhere in the chain.

Already done that same result, blocked all policies bar the proxy one.
The only thing I have not done is create a fresh mandatory profile, (naughty me I left it as the old XP one) and I am not redirecting app data.

@Disease So even using a registry change didnt work? Is that the one here: How to configure client proxy server settings by using a registry file
I am having similar issues and I am very interested to hear your troubles!

Yes Witch even using the above registry tweek gives me no joy, it just won't tick the damn box.
I created a brand new clean profile, logged in as a user and it worked fine, logged out restarted, logged back in as the same user and the use proxy box was not ticked, it's as if it screws the profile over once someone has logged in.
The profile has only read and execute perms for the everyone group, FC for system and Administrators.

That's very odd and fills me with trepidation...

RESOLVED!!! YAY \o/
TMG Client was the culprit, found through installing clean copy of Win7 and internet was working, stopped as soon as I put on TMG Client. I had set auto discovery of TMG server in settings but not set up AD DS for auto discovey.
If the TMG client does not find a serve it sets the browser config to windows default over writing the GPO settings and no tick in the box.
Still sorted now Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
