We are having a problem with random users and IE. For some of our staff IE works as it should but for others it wont display the first web page they try to load (can be any link to any site) but once its failed to connect a refresh makes it work a treat!
Our proxy settings are set through GPO and the same policy for all staff so I have ruled that one out and I have tried giving a new profile to the staff with the problem, still nothing. Once the page is refreshed, open a second instance of IE or the user browses to another site IE starts behaving normally.
I gave a staff account Admin rights for a test and went control panel -> Internet options (before trying any pages) and all the proxy details were correct but desktop website still failed to load. Once i clicked OK on Internet properties (having changed nothing) desktop wallpaper loaded and everything worked as it should.
Any tips or ideas would be appreciated
