Access denied when launching an executable from shared drive on domain controller.

I am recieving an "Access Denied" message when launching a non-msi setup from a domain controller while logged in as a domain admin. This domain controller also holds the shared drive. I open and save and chane other files such as text documents. Batch commands amd other programs do not launch, they also get access denied. Both Share and NTFS permissions have everyone full control and any of the other groups that are listed are not set to deny access.

You may want to disable (uncheck) the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration in the Windows Components in the Add/Remove Programs applet.

Add the DC to the list of "Local Intranet" zone, and check if in the security settings for the Intranet zone under "Miscellaneous" the point "Launching applications and unsafe files" is activated.

I'm having this exact problem.  The suggestions offered pertain to Internet Explorer settings, not Windows Explorer or accessing executables on network shares.  I'm dumb as half a bag of hammers so I can't figure out how the suggested fixes apply.  I tried them anyway and they don't fix the problem for me.

Disregard my earlier comment.  The first suggestion (JMTshiteya) works for me:
"You may want to disable (uncheck) the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration in the Windows Components in the Add/Remove Programs applet. "
That fixed it.
