I'm a little stuck here and after some tips on how to solve. No matter what I do I cannot get these computers to accept the proxy/homepage settings.
I've checked all other GPO's and there shouldn't be anything conflicting with it. Although I do have "User Group Policy loopback processing mode" set to merge as I redirect the desktop based on the Computer.
I've run rsop on a pc that should be effected but nothing shows regarding the GPO.
I've tried everything I can think of, so any tips on how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated. We seem to have this problem on HP laptops, unsure if that's connected.
We had an issue with this in both my schools and I think it was done with a script that changed the reg settings on the machines. As you say, all GPO settings were correct but still no dice.
I have just googled "changing homepage with a script" and there are several examples which might help.
Uninstall IE 10 if you have it, the proxy settings are different in GPO
would rather keep ie10, but I think you may be onto something as all these hp laptops are window 7 with ie10
