removing hte server signature in IIS 7.5

How do I remove the Server Signature  "On, Microsoft-IIS/7.5 ASP.NET 4.0.30319" in IIS 7.5?

There's this SEO report that shows that our web server lists this info and I want to remove it.

Well, the first two scans don't really have any info on doing what I need to do.
The third link looks like it might, but I have to write code to just remove the server signature, is it not an option setting somewhere in IIS?

You download and install the latest version of url scan
Once URLScan is installed, please open and modify the UrlScan.ini file in this location: %windir%\system32\inetsrv\urlscan\UrlScan.ini

Near the bottom of the UrlScan.ini file you’ll find a [DenyQueryStringSequences] section.  Add an additional “aspxerrorpath=” entry immediately below it and then save the file:

[DenyQueryStringSequences]
aspxerrorpath=

In addition, tilde characters can be added to [DenyUrlSequences] to deny it in the urls.

[DenyUrlSequences]
~

The above entry disallows URLs that have an “aspxerrorpath=” querystring attribute from making their way to ASP.NET applications, and will instead cause the web-server to return a HTTP error.  Adding this rule prevents attackers from distinguishing between the different types of errors occurring on a server – which helps block attacks using this vulnerability.

Lastly, set the AlternateServerName= variable to:

AlternateServerName=Apache

After saving this change, run “iisreset” from a command prompt (elevated as admin) for the above changes to take effect. Alternatively, reboot your server.

THanks for your help, I had my web developer create the script and I think it's now working.
