    Yesterday I decided to put our first Vista PC on our network. Everything seems okay, except whenever I am logged in with a domain account (versus local user), I cannot edit the LAN settings to put our proxy info in.

    Vista says to contact the systems administrator (me) because apparently I have a group policy stopping users from editing LAN settings (which I don't). My account has domain/enterprise admin permissions and it still won't let me edit.

    So here is what I have:

    Windows XP/IE6 computers - can edit fine
    Windows XP/IE7 computers - can edit fine
    Windows Vista/IE7 computer - can't edit

    Any suggestions for what I can try? I am using Vista Enterprise.

    Well I'll just take a wild stab in the dark on this one, lol...

    Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy
    Local Policies -> Security Options
    Change Network security: LAN Manager authentication level to “Send LM & NTLM - use NTLM v.2 if negotiated”

    Nope, didn't work :(

    The only way I've been able to do it so far is by enabling the local Administrator account or to edit IE info using MMC.

    I must admit this is one area I am weak in with Vista, lol, but I saw no replies so gave it a shot. I'll keep looking into it, though, might need to know someday. I figured the auth wasn't getting through.
