Proxy exceptions in Windows 7 Internet Explorer

    In Windows XP, IE's proxy settings included a list of URL patterns
    that would bypass the proxy. In Windows 7 this functionality seems
    to have been removed, there is only a checkbox to ignore the proxy
    for local addresses.

    Is there some way in Windows 7 to have a proxy exception list like
    there was in XP? Maybe enter directly into the registry? Thanks for
    any help with this...

    Not in the "Home Premium" version as far as I know. (Unfortunately a lot
    of small businesses just go out and buy the cheapest POS computer they
    can find at a big-box store, invariably running Win7 Home.)

    However, some more web searching turned up the actual registry entry
    required:

    Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
    Name: ProxyOverride
    Data Type: Reg_SZ
    Value: *.microsoft.com;*.myitforum.com

    Have not tried it yet, but looks promising...
