Internet Zone Default "High"

When I go to I.E. 6.0 running on my Windows 2003 Ent. server and try to change the internet security zone from "High" to "Low" I get the following error message.

"The recommended security level for this zone is "High". The level that you have chosen is lower than this. Please choose a security level of "High" or Higher.

How do I get around this?  I don't want to have to add sites to the allowed list everytime I have to surf the web.

My preferred solution would be www.mozilla.org/products/firefox.

However, for info on changing minimum security setting levels for different zones in IE, see "Description of Internet Explorer security zones registry entries" at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=182569.
If you don't want to tamper with the registry you could click the custom level button and create your own security level
There's an easier way to do this. Just go into the Add/Remove Windows components in your control panel and remove Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration
