We upgraded to IE8 on Terminal Server 2003, IEESC is not enabled in Control Panel but IE displays that it's still active and it does block stuff for regular users

How can this be adjusted?

Thanks

Hello !

You don't disable it, you uninstall it.

Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Windows Components. Look it up in the list and uncheck it. Click Next until you're done.

If IESC was enabled when the server was made a terminal server, and then subsequently uninstalled, it will still be enabled in each users profile. You can disable and reset through the use of a regisrty key. This will need to be run in each users profile.

Create the file: RemoveIESC.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap]
@=""
"IEHarden"=-
"IEHardenIENoWarn"=-

2.      Run the file RemoveIESC.reg in their terminal server session.

You may also have to do the following after running the reg key
3.      Open internet explorer
4.      Tools – Options – Advanced tab
 a.      Restore Advanced Settings button – APPLY
 b.      RESET button – OK – OK
