IE8 Lost Proxy Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • in my company 1500 Users works on 2003 TS. The proxy settings set with GPOs. Thats works well, but per day maybe 60-80 User lost the Settings (ProxyEnable, Proxyserver, ProxyOverride).

    Becouse we cant find out why, i wrote a small Service who looked every 10 minutes for the settings for every user, and if they lost the service set the proxysettings new an makes a eventlogentry. Thats only a workaroud.

    Today i use Procmon to see who change the settings. I cant log everything, because the CPU goes to high, but I looked at the Proxyenable and Proxyserver key for every user.

    What i find out is, that the IE8 self make the changes. First Proxyenabe set to 0 = no and then the Key proxyserver was deletet. At the same time no GPO Updates for the User and the TS occures.

    Why did the IE8 change the settings? I phoned the user and he said that he only checked his webmail on GMX. No new tabs and the Browser was open 1 houre before.

    Any idea?
