IE 9 - Unable to change proxy settings


  • Hi,

    I have a Windows 7 pc with IE 9 installed.

    I wa able to change proxy settings a first time.

    From now, I can't change it again: IE 9 re-set the previous configuration.

    For example: now i have set in proxy settings "" and port 8080. I try to change it in port 8080. Click OK and OK again to close IE Options window. Close IE 9 and reopen it. Proxy "" is displayed.

    Any suggestions to fix this issue?

  • Hi

    I have the same problem on my laptop with Windows Vista 32b, IE9 installed and FireFox 4.01 (as default browser).
    I keep setting the proxy setting to "automatically detect settings".
    Every time I log on the internet IE9 seems to reset it to unchecked (no matter which browser I am using).

    My problem looks a lot like your problem tosdan78...

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi,


    I would like to verify if the computer is in domain? Did you set any group policy for IE proxy?


    I suggest resetting IE, perform the clean boot first.




    After that, right click the IE9 shortcut and run as administrator. Then go to change the proxy to check the result.


    Best Regards,
