Local Area Network Settings Keep resetting
At work, we have Internet Explorer (6.0.2800.1106, on Windows 2000 latest SP) configured so that in the "Local Area Network (LAN) Settings," the check box "Use a proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)." is checked. We have that checked along with an IP address there an port, all configured. It's all been fine and dandy until recently.

For some reason, after a day, it keeps resetting itself, which means we have to check it again. We check it again, then the following day it unchecks itself again. This is throughout the company.

Any thoughts? It only seems to be in Internet Explorer. It does not happen in any other browser. Could it be that Windows update could be automatically on and when it updates, it resets the settings?

Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm about to lose all my hair from pulling it.
