I have heard some rumblings that there are issues with IE Maintenance and IE
7 if you are setting IE Maintenance policy from "downlevel" OS'. Are you
setting this from a XP machine or a Vista machine? If XP, you might try
setting it from a Vista machine if you have one (in a test scenario of
course) and see if it functions any better.

Subject: [gptalk] IE7 GPO


I have a question about the GPO on Internet Explorer 7. I created a GPO for
certain users to block the usage of the Internet and for those machines that
have IE 6 it works fine, but for those computers that have upgraded to IE 7
it doesn't. I had gone into the User Configuration; Windows Settings;
Internet Explorer Maintenance; Connection; Proxy Settings and placed a bogus
proxy, but for some reason in IE 7 it bypasses those settings and goes
through. How can I resolve this issue?


Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
