Proxy settings per machine
I've been setting the proxy on our network with the local computer policy set to per machine and not per user. Just got a load of new laptops in, gone to set the policy and they don't have one I'm looking for. It was - Local COmputer Policy\Computer Configuration\Adminstrative Temples\Windows Components\internet Explorer.
Anyone got any ideas or alternative ways to set proxy so it doesn't change on an individual basis ?
All help appriciated.

Proxy settings are per user.

But I used to be able to change it using the policy setting in the attached screen shot. Which has now dissapeared. All I have now in the Windows components are media player and windows update

Are you using the updated .adm file for IE7?

You could use the user proxy setting with loopback.
Another option would be to use a logon script.

Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user)

proxycfg sets proxy settings for applications using WinHTTP but that shouldn't affect Internet Explorer. It's useful when you have apps (other than web browsers) which can connect to the internet but cannot be configured to use a proxy server
