Disabling IESEC on Windows 2008

This is anal.

We have disabled the IESEC option for admins and users on our 2008 RDS, however it still prompts users and admins every time you browse.
I have tried the 2003 ISEC.adm with no joy.

How else can this be done?

also, the server is using loop back processing on GPO (if this helps!)
Krzysztof PytkoActive Directory EngineerCommented:
That could be a little bit difficult because Windows Server 2008 uses ipv6 whihc uses by default IPSec for securing its connection.

If you really sure that you don't want to have IPSec enabled on your server and you are sure that no other servers/roles/software use IPv6 you may try to disable IPv6 in registry first and then check disabling IESEC

However, disabling IPv6 is not recommended.

and if you still to do that, try disabling ipv6 in registry

Thats strange, enabling the "Remote Desktop Role", turns "IE Enhanced Security Configuration" -> “Off for users”

If you change it later, users have to log off first, to get the new IESEC configuration.

Can you try to logon wit a new test user (new roaming profile) and post the result please.
