    Proxy software

    I have a laptop that is locked down with GPOs and when it is taken off the network and home... any user is not able to use the internet. I am certain this is because proxy is enabled and no user has the permission to change this through the internet options. I was wondering if there is a script out there that will remove the proxy appropriately when it's not on the network.

    Or even a software that'll run on the taskbar and you can switch between having it off or on.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for your help guys. I've found a script on here that will do the trick, and it works.


    Code:
    Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
    
    intmsg = msgbox("CHANGE PROXY SETTINGS" & chr(13) & "ARE YOU AT HOME?",vbYesNo+vbQuestion,"WHERE ARE YOU?")
    
    if intmsg = vbyes then dwvalue = 0 else dwvalue = 1
    
    strComputer = "."
    Set objRegistry = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
     
    strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings"
    
    strValueName = "ProxyEnable"
    objRegistry.SetDWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath, strValueName, dwValue
    
    msgtxt = "THE PROXY SERVER HAS BEEN "
    if dwvalue = 0 then msgtxt = msgtxt & "DISABLED"
    if dwvalue = 1 then msgtxt = msgtxt & "ENABLED"
    
    intmsg = msgbox(msgtxt,vbOKOnly+vbInfo,"Done")
