Disabling Internet Explorer Enhanced Security on Windows Server 2008


Last Updated on June 8, 2010 by GrahamWalsh

Since I’ve started using Server 2008, I see that quite a few items have changed since 2003 server. One annoying bit is the IE Security dialogue that keeps popping up when using the browser. The servers I build are on VM’s for testing so when you need to install apps from the web, it’s really annoying. I should probably install Chrome but I can’t be bothered. Here’s how to disabled the IE ESC.

Open the Server Manager Console and scroll down on the main page to the Security Information area and click on “Configure IE ESC” on the right hand side. On the pop up, select Off and OK.


That’s it.
