Turn off Internet Connection Wizard if URL connection is referring to Microsoft. com

This policy setting specifies whether the Internet Connection Wizard can connect to Microsoft to download a list of Internet Service Providers (ISPs). If you enable this policy setting the “Choose a list of Internet Service Providers” path in the Internet Connection Wizard causes the wizard to exit. This prevents users from retrieving the list of ISPs which resides on Microsoft servers. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting users can connect to Microsoft to download a list of ISPs for their area.
