Change Internet Security levels for Server 2008 for Quickbooks 2008 Pro

I have one server and it is my DC as well as my FS.  I have our accountant RDP into the server to do their weekly transactions into quickbooks 2008 pro.  I recently upgraded to Server 2008 and everything is working EXCEPT quickbooks do to the following error I get while launching Quickbooks:
"Internet Security Levels are set too high."  I have tried looking for a solutions without having to completely remove all security within IE.  Can somebody point me in the right direction.  I was able to get it to work with administrator by removing a bunch of security settings so I can get stuff done, but do not like our accountant having my administrator password to my one and only domain controller and file server.  PLEASE, HELP!!!  Thanks!!

It sounds like whatever website Quickbooks is attempting to connect to needs to be added as a Trusted Site.
I'm guessing that Quickbooks is trying to connect to a site to check for software updates.  Not sure specifically what that URL is but you could try adding the intuit.com domain.

Go into Server Management.
Under "Security Information", on the right side window, choose "Configure IE ESC"
Turn this Off for whichever you want to be able to change the internet security level in. It was a little unclear by your message, but I'm thinking for Administrators. It automatically changed this to Medium-High for me, and QB stopped complaining immediately!

You may have to reset your home page after you do this. Don't know why that is, didn't care enough to figure it out. :)

I don't want to seem selfish, but the problem described cannot be solved by adding as a trusted source at all. I tried that first, with no change to the issue (I had to fix this myself on the day I posted my reply, and had tried his solution as part of my own troubleshooting of the exact same problem described.)

To put Aaron's recommendation as part of the solution would be incorrect.

Acetaminophen... do you have more specific instructions? I do not see where you are instructing on my server. I am running Server 2008 and running QuickBooks 2008. Thanks
