Proxy setting keep resetting themselves to 127.0.0.1?
On our XP machines the proxy keeps setting itself to 127.0.0.1 for HTTP and Secure. If I go into the connection settings and untick the "use a proxy" box and click ok, the settings are cleared (I can check this by going to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings in the registry).
If I then click OK on the Internet Properties window (the one with connection, programs, etc along the top) the proxy is re-enabled. I can check this is when it happens by refreshing the registry. Here's are the 2 keys that are at fault:
ProxyEnable REG_DWORD 1
ProxyServer REG_SZ http=127.0.0.1:1100;https=127.0.0.1:1100
The port numbers seems to vary, but they're always the same for http and https.
I can reproduce this every time. It seems to be on all Win XP machines. Our Win 7 machines aren't affected by this (as far as I can tell).
Any help would be appreciated. Editing the REG directly doesn't have any affect either.
Setting proxy settings via GP do nothing.
