Enable WPAD optimization

Setting the policy to Enabled or leaving it unset turns on WPAD (Web Proxy Auto-Discovery) optimization in Google Chrome.

Setting the policy to Disabled turns off WPAD optimization, causing Google Chrome to wait longer for DNS-based WPAD servers.

Whether or not this policy is set, users can't change the WPAD optimization setting.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
