    Hi Aung,
    do you have Administrative access to your machine?

  3. Viking666 says:

    I have the same problem as Aung…. And yes, I am the administrator and the sole user.

  4. Nik says:

    No matter that you are Admin, you have to start Command prompt in elevated mode. Right click on CMD and select ‘Run as Administrator’

    I have run it countless times in elevated mode and run the netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie script, which reports back with the correct proxy server IP address and port, and that the proxy server is by-passed for local use, which is all fine, but on rebooting I still can’t access the internet. The same settings work flawlessly on Vista and XP. On changing back to normal Internet Explorer settings, it also works flawlessly again.

    I have noticed that this issue is not resolved for everyone in our company also.
    In our case two users had different proxy permissions/ports and that was the issue.

    I can’t tell what is wrong with your case but if Microsoft is working on the fix, then this is a confirmed bug..

    Thanks. Having run the script (and without success, as previously discussed), I cannot now access the Metro Store App on either of my two installations. Do you know what the reverse script is to return to the status quo?
