cant find it
tried that link too
but cannot see it under windows 2008 enterprise r2 sp1
For example there is no Add/Remove Programs an Windows Features in 2008 like it is in 2003
it's nowhere to be found?under *Turn Windows features on or off*.
i must be missing something, can you point me to where in the link above works?

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

The steps above are only applicable for 2003 server. I am not aware of any way to disable the enhanced IE security configuration in 2008 server. It's not in Windows Features and Add/Remove Windows Components doesn't exist the way it did with 2003 server. What I do is simply use Trusted Sites for the websites that I need to get to. However, in general, I try to avoid browsing the internet from a server console anyhow.

I would have to object to the solution that was accepted the correct solution was provided. If you to to Server Manager under Server Summary you will find Security Information here you will see Configure IE ESC you can disable at this point.

So my original answer was for server 2003 (sorry).  But I must concer with darius that ESC can in fact be turned off on Windows 2008 server.  The link provided by darius does in fact provide the correct procedure -- but it got a bit buried with discussion and obfuscated with server 2003 info.

here is a somewhat more straight-forward link with the same answer:  http://4sysops.com/archives/how-to-disable-internet-explorer-enhanced-security-configuration-ie-esc-in-windows-server-2008/

I belive darius has a valid basis for objecting to the accepted solution, which is incorrect.
