The server allows capture of the HTTP service banner. Service banners can contain sensitive information, such as application and Operating System (OS) version numbers. An attacker can use the version information from your Web server to determine if there are any known vulnerabilities present, or can use such information to create attacks towards the specific application or OS.

The easiest and most common way of removing the server header info is by using URLScan.  You can download and find step by step instructions for configuring it here: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/473/using-urlscan

Yes, you configure URLScan on the web server.  I would highly recommend you use it, as it is free and widely used so you can find plenty of documentation on it.  Another option is Server Mask, which is a product from Port80Software.  You can download a free 30 day trial here: http://www.port80software.com/products/servermask/

No, there should not be a performance impact to your server.  The configuration is all text based.
