Internet Explorer Maintenance Odd Behaviour

Internet Explorer Maintenance Odd Behaviour

Recently, I was experiencing some odd behaviour on some of our Windows boxes.  We were getting redirected to a proxy server but RSOP.MSC and group policy showed that we should have been good in the GUI.

The issue is IE Maintenance will store it’s settings in a INS file as opposed to the registry and for some reason IE Maintenance in GPEDIT.MSC doesn’t display the values.  This document details it more:

The INS files created via GPO are placed in the following locations:
2003-“C:\Documents and Settings\trententtye\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer”
2008-“C:\Users\trententtye\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer”
