Hi,

I've installed a bunch of virtual Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard servers with IE8. However even when logged in as Administrator I'm unable to lower the security setting from High. How can I change this?

Thanks,
Ronnie

Have you tried to look at the default Security/Local/Group Policies located at your Administrative tools?

How are you attempting to do it?

have you setup some sort of domain (active directory) with all these servers as members?

It could be a domain policy not sure

This document talks about it

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd883248%28WS.10%29.aspx

search on the page for

"Apply Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration to specific users"

It talks about turning it on but you may be able to reverse it

Hi,

all the servers are in a domain with AD, but I've other servers in the same domain that don't have this issue.

However following the link that jbits1212 and changing the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration to off for the Administrators fixed it.

Thanks,
Ronnie
