    irritating IE issue

    right this happens on both IE6 and 7, we thought it could have been a conflict of ADMs between the IE6 and 7 ones but that doesnt seem to be the case

    basicly when a user logs on and goes into internet explorer the page will sit there and not load, it appears that it doesnt see the proxy, we can then click stop and refresh and the page will load as it should

    this happens on alot of machines but not all, its not related to the user as it can work on some machines but not on others with the same account

    if anyone has encountered this issue we're at a loss for ideas on fixing it, please please please help!

    Re: irritating IE issue

    Are there any differences between the "HTTP 1.1" settings (Tools > Options > Advanced) on the affected and non-affected machines?

    ah ha, there different, http 1.1 through proxy wasnt ticked in advanced settings on our GPOs, the guy who made our IE7 policy obviously didnt notice the advanced tab under internet explorer maintainence

    Re: irritating IE issue

    sounds a bit odd...there's not a limit on traffic through your proxy is there? as maybe its hanging and waiting for some bandwidth?

    does it happen in firefox or opera?

    i cant test either of those as it happens to students and teachers only, those of us with non mandatory profiles seem to be fine

    Re: irritating IE issue

    Have you run anything like a vbscript on the affected machine to show you the current proxy setup to make sure they have picked up the correct settings?

    Group policy modelling to show what GPO's should be applied?

    They're not trying to connect to t'internet via any dialup including msn are they?

    Re: irritating IE issue

    right this happens on both IE6 and 7, we thought it could have been a conflict of ADMs between the IE6 and 7 ones but that doesnt seem to be the case
    IE6 and IE7 policies do work together without problems. IE7 simply has more options to tweak which are not applicable to IE6.

    this happens on alot of machines but not all, its not related to the user as it can work on some machines but not on others with the same account
    Chances are then, it'll be to do with where the computer objects are located in Active Directory. If a user can logon to computer A and the internet works but not computer B then it isn't a user or profile issue.

    I would compare where good and not working machines are in your Active Directory structure. I am presuming network connectivity is ok and that you can access your network drives and printers for example.

    A conflict can happen if a computer is in an OU named "Computers", but the user is in an OU named "Pupils" for example.

    The easiest way to get around this (for example), is to create an OU called "Curriculum" then two sub OU's Computers and Pupils. You would set the policies on Curriculum and the sub OU's would inherit the policies set. I hope this makes sense.

    Re: irritating IE issue

    So network connectivity is fine by the sounds of things. I would try deleting all locally cached profiles in C:\Documents and Settings\ or even better, specify this policy -

    Computer Config > Admin Templates > System > User Profiles

    Enable - 'Delete cached copies of roaming profiles'

    Now logon to a problem machine as an administrator and at the run menu type: gpupdate /force

    Now reboot the workstation and see what happens.

    Forgive me but, on the PC concerned have you tried flushing the DNS cache (@ command prompt: ipconfig /flushdns).

    Re: irritating IE issue

    yea we tried that

    We managed to fix the symtom but not the cause though, changing the homepage to an intranet page with a link to an internet page within it fixes it, the problem only occurs when we direct users homepage to be a page out on the internet
