Enable WPAD optimisation

Allows you to turn off WPAD (Web Proxy Auto-Discovery) optimisation in Google Chrome.

If this policy is set to false, WPAD optimisation is disabled causing Google Chrome to wait longer for DNS-based WPAD servers. If the policy is not set or is enabled, WPAD optimisation is enabled.

Independent of whether or how this policy is set, the WPAD optimisation setting cannot be changed by users.
