Q

Can I adjust proxy settings to automatically set at each user login?

I am using a proxy server in our network and I manually set the proxy settings in Internet Explorer on every client computer. However, this exercise is repeated on every new user profile where numerous users are using one client machine. Is there any way that proxy settings can automatically set at user login?

If you are in an Active Directory environment, you can set this using a Group Policy Object. One setting in particular that might be useful in your scenario would be Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user).
