I am trying to change the security settings from high  to a less secure so I can run qb 2009 remotely on the server.  I cannot make changes in the security settings because all  the buttons are grayed when I log onto the server remotely with the user that needs to run Quick Books remotely

you may also need to check your group policy - if you have GPO settings applied, some buttons will be greyed out

also, go to start > run and type rsop.msc and see what gpo settings your server is getting.  do you control the gpo's that are pushed out to your domain?
