When you said "but it is enabled for one user".... I believe that the IE Enhanced Security Feature is available only in server system not on a client system.  I am confused with you comments.

All the other users have Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Disabled but its turned on for one guy - that's why I don't understand it.

Its off in server manager for Administrators and Users

He shouldn't be able to modify these settings, create a new user and tell me if it has the correct settings.

All i know is when you're setting up your terminal server, you choose whether you want that option for Internet explorer on for all users or off. It has never occurred to me that it can be changed later on.

It sounds like you only have it turned off for administrators.  Go back to Server Manager and click on Configure IE ESC, then under users make sure it's set to Off.

If it's already off then please post a screen shoot of why you think it's still on.

Thanks,
Jeff
