Turn off IE Enhanced Security Configuration for All Users on Windows Server 2008 R2 RDS Server

Working with a RDS on Windows Server 2008 R2 (terminal services) server that I have turned off IE ESC using Server Manager. When I open all programs, even those that request Internet information, I do not receive any warnings. When standard users open programs that access the Internet, they are prompted with "Content within this application coming from the web site listed..." Sometimes the programs works and other times they just crash. Users have even attempted to add the sites stated into the Trusted Sites zone. I can't seem to find the right area to modify the setting so that users are no longer prompted with this warning.

tyc123: thank you, but that is how I had it originally configured with IE ESC turned off for all users and admins. Works for Admins, not users.

I ended up configuring it from GP using Computer Policy\Admin Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Internet Zone, setting it to a lower security zone.

That is not really a fix and will work until you get security audited.

Open Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Add/Remove Windows Components.
Select Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration, and then click Details.
Click to select the check box for the users or groups that you want to apply the enhanced security configuration to: For administrator groups, For all other groups, or both, and then click OK.

This is a better solution source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/815141/en-us#63
    Click Next, and then click Finish.
    Restart Internet Explorer to apply the enhanced security settings.
