    LAN Settings (XPPro/IE6/SP2)

    Sorry if this is a repeat question, but I tried searching and couldn't find the answer.
    My computer insists on losing its Internet Explorer LAN settings every time I log off and/or reboot.
    The settings remain but no selection box remains checked. While it's not a big deal to check "automatic configuration script" or "proxy server" on login, it gets annoying. We have the means to use either type of setting and routinely configuration both options; then select which one seems to be working better on a particular day.
    Since I'm pretty sure this isn't an XP "feature" I must be doing something wrong on the XP box since W2K boxes set up the same way in the same domain on the same network don't exhibit this behavior (or "behaviour" for the rest of the world).
    Any ideas would be appreciated. ... Thanks

    Are you logging on as an user in the administrators group or some other group? Is there a script begin run at logon or boot that would be the culprit? Or maybe some policy enforcement?

    I'm a member of the administrators group and am sending this from the w2k laptop also on my desk which doesn't lose it's LAN settings. I just booted it up because am making an Acronis 9.0 backup of the XP box.
    Will try removing one set of LAN settings (automatic configuration script) and see if the proxy settings hold. Maybe I'm confusing it by having both sets available.
