ProxyCfg WinHTTP and WinInet IE

Thanks for Ari to clarify on what exactly this tool will set programmtically.

Proxy and WinHttp

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winhttp/http/proxycfg_exe__a_proxy_configuration_tool.asp

"Actually, this tool only sets the proxy settings for winhttp which is a different client http stack then WinInet (the one used by internet explorer and a large number of other applications. You can use the tool to configure winhttp to use the same proxy settings as WinInet as long as the WinInet/IE one are not in an autodetect mode (the default)."
