Hello,

I have a user that is running windows 7 x64 using a roaming profile and he keeps noticing that his proxy is checked in IE. I had him uncheck it and logoff and machine but the setting came back. I had him logon to another windows 7 workstation and the setting was enabled there as well telling me that this is something in his roaming profile. Where in a Windows 7 roaming profile are the proxy settings for IE? Thank you for the advice.

See if this is what you are looking for.

Would that work for a Windows 7 user profile?

My apologies, UPHC is incorporated in Vista and Windows 7.

I will do some more searching and see what I can come up with. There is an article on changing the roaming profile which may be of use. The applicable part begins at the bottom of page 13. The link below is for a download of this article from Download Microsoft.com

So I reapplied permissions on the roaming profile on the server down to all child objects for that user, had him delect the proxy in IE and remove any registry entries in HKCU referring to the proxy server. He then rebooted and logged back on to see that the proxy was this time deselected in IE. Let's hope that it sticks! I'll know if a few days for sure.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Looks like it came back. This time the user did not logoff or reboot and it magically returned. I'm leaning towards an application making the change in IE but not sure which one.

The issue was caused by the thinkvantage access connections utility. Seems that when this user switched to the wifi profile, it was setting the proxy. Case closed.
