Which box in the LAN Settings are you wanting unchecked?...the
'Automatic Detect Settings' box? or 'Use automatic configuration script'

Subject: [gptalk] Disable IE Automatically Detect Settings


I simply need to uncheck that box in the IE connection settings.


I created a user based group policy with these two objects set


User Configuration/Windows Settings/Internet Explorer
Maintenance/Connection/Connection Settings...  and imported the setting
with that box unchecked.


User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet
Explorer/Disable changing Automatic Configuration settings...  and
enabled this setting.


The policy does indeed prevent people from mucking with the settings,
however it doesn't uncheck the box like I would like.


Am I missing something here?  Is there a separate setting I should be
using to accomplish this?
