  • Internet Explorer Setting in XP

    Hi All,

    I would like to disable "Proxy Setting" option, where other employees in my organization should not able to change the proxy setting from their Domain Login.

    Please help me in this case.

    OS - MS Windows XP with SP3

    IE version - 8.0

    Thanks in Advance.

      You can definitely do this using group policy - I don't recall the exact item off the top of my head, but if I had it in front of me I could find it
      Something about Internet Explorer Maintenance Settings i think..

        Group Policy location:

        Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer>Disable Changing Proxy Settings

        To quote from the properties page:

        This setting specifies to connect to the internet using the proxy server settings specified. A proxy server acts as an intermediary between your internal network (intranet) and the Internet, retrieving files from remote Web servers.

        If you enable this policy, the user will not be able to configure proxy settings. You can import your current Proxy settings from your machine using Internet Explorer Maintenance under Admin Templates using group policy editor.

        If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the user will have the freedom to configure proxy settings.
