Internet Explorer Auto-Proxy Script Download Error

So I came across this error when outside our network.

Lots of websites said to simply turn off the automatic proxy detection. Yes this will probably stop the pop up from coming up but it will also probably stop your internet from working because you've disabled your proxy.

A better solution is to check your GPO Policy in regards to Internet Explorer.

Open Group Policy Console and check that none of your applied USER GPO's are applying

User Config > Admin Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > 'Display error message on proxy script download failure'

If this is set to enabled you'll find that when a  user and computer are in a place that can't reach the WPAD file it will continuously show the user the above error. If it is enabled you will need to switch it to disabled.
