If it sucks, then what's a better way of enforcing proxy settings?  Any
suggestions would be great.

Well, other than the fact that the IE Maintenance CSE just sucks (!),
you might try enabling the policy at Computer
Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy\IE
Maintenance Policy Processing\Process even if the Group Policy Objects
have not changed. Sometimes that jump starts this policy.

Subject: [gptalk] IE maintenance policy question...



This is my first time to address this list.  The question I have regards
the IE maintenance policies...specifically those related to proxy
settings.  I have setup a policy and am applying it to my user OU in my
domain.  Oddly, when I run RSOP on a few clients it shows the policy is
applied successfully and there are no issues related to this policy
reported by RSOP, however when I check the browser settings the proxy
settings have not been applied.  Further, the system has been logging
this in the applog:


Event Type:        Error

Event Source:    Userenv

Event Category:                None

Event ID:              1030

Date:                     8/15/2007

Time:                     6:09:53 AM

User:                     DOMAIN\user

Computer:          COMPUTERNAME


Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. A message
that describes the reason for this was previously logged by the policy

Finally, I was told that if there were folders "custom#" in this path
the policy was being applied...particularly if there was an *.ins file
in one of these folders w/ the proxy settings in it.  If found the
folders and the file w/ the proxy settings yet it is still not being


\\%computername%\c$\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application
Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Custom Settings\


Reboots, adjusting the policy priority order, checking scope, deleting
and recreating "custom settings" folder in the profile...nothing has
worked so far.  Any clues as to what I might need to check would be
