Admin account can't apply proxy settings on IE8

By tui ·
Hi people,

I have an old server running win2k3 sp2. The problem is that I can't change the proxy setting within IE8 while logged in as the default administrator. For some reason the proxy setting has wiped itself and whenever I try to input the proxy server address and port, pushing both apply and ok wont work at all so I have to cancel which is what I don't want because no changes are made.
This has become a problem as I can't access the internet while on the server, but all the clients internet settings are still correct and able to access the internet.

It may help to know that I had installed a second server a few months ago, but the server in question was working fine until last week.

Any help would greatly be appreciated as it's driving my head in and I can't do any work.

copied admin account

by tui In reply to Admin account can't apply ...

I have just copied the default administrator account in AD and created another admin account as a temporary solution and it seems to allow me to make changes within the IE8, however, I would like to avoid using this account as much as possible.

So if anyone has any suggestions that I could otherwise try then please post em.
