Automatically Detect Settings.  Not the configuration script setting.

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

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?

 

Thanks,

~Ben
