How are IE machine preferences set? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently we had an issue where a service running on a server needed a proxy exception. Since services won't use proxy exceptions specified in user group policy (IE maintenance settings) a colleague logged on to the server and set a proxy exception, logged off and the service began working.

    I looked in the registry and noticed his exception was not only added to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings, but also to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings.

    I'm wondering exactly how IE machine settings are modified as it appears most settings configurable for the user are also machine configurable too.
