Un-install IE Enhanced security from Windows Components. Open up your control panel, add/remove programs, add/remove windows components. check box for ie enhanced security.


Note that this is only for Windows Server 2003 and higher.
When you copy an EXE file from another computer to a Windows Server 2003 box, there is what is called a blocked property set on the file. This is due to the increased security on servers.
Right-click on the file and choose Properties. You’ll see a button called Unblock at the bottom.


Real permissions issue - In this case, make sure you are an Administrator or you are part of the Domain Admins group if you are in a domain.

Also, you can try right-clicking on the file and choose Run As. Then type in the Administrator credentials and try to run the file. If you are able to run it, that means you account is not setup properly or is not in the right user group.
