Group Policy Preferences for Internet Explorer 10 show up in gpresult as applying to "Internet Explorer 5 and 6"


  • We have all Windows 2012 R2 domain controllers. Our domain functional level is Windows Server 2008 R2. All of our workstations are running Internet Explorer 11. When I create a Group Policy Preference for Internet Explorer 10 and apply it to the desired OU, the users in that OU cannot access the Internet. When I run gpresult /h on the workstations in question and look at the resulting html file, I see "User Configuration > Control Panel Settings > Internet Settings > Internet Explorer 5 and 6 > Connections > Policy > Proxy Server" and my proxy server settings are there. However, when I launch Internet Explorer and click on "Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings", the proxy server settings are gone. My first question is, "Why does the gpresult show that the settings are for "Internet Explorer 5 and 6"? The second question is obviously, why are the proxy server settings not working?
