Need some help with our Remote Desktop Server. I have disabled IEESC for Users and Administrators. When a new user logs in and opens Internet Explorer it still warns them the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is not enabled. How can I completely remove it?

Can you try setting the default home page to say google.com for one of these users. if it works can you create a GPO that does the same thing for all users. Something will need to update the default homepage.

Gotchya... Bigger issue. Maybe I am having a GPO issue because I do have a GPO in place? Since this is a terminal server, It is in an OU that the users arent in. I need to use User loopback processing. Anything else?

If the TS is in a different OU it should be inheriting the default domain policy and whatever is other GPO might be above it. The exception to this is if you have block inheritance set on that OU. If blocking is not setup you could either modify the default domain policy, block and create a GPO for that OU, or keep the default and create a GPO for the OU and have both on there and have the custom one process after the default one.

I would go with the last so that you inherit all the default policies then apply the TS specific GPO which sets the homepage and any other values. Some other values I would suggest is not letting users shut down the system, access things they shouldn't (administrative tools), etc.
