Windows 2012 Server R2

I have just set up a Windows 2012 Server Standard version, R2. This is a DC. I have IE 10 or 11. I want to download some software from MSDN, but I get a message that my Security Settings don't allow this. I am logged in as an admin and running all on premises.

I checked my internet options in IE and didn't see anything that should prohibit this. Internet settings set to high and Custom level is grayed out.

Standalone server. Any thoughts on how I can give myself permissions for this?

Thx

I have Windows Server 2012 R2. That is where I looked first, but it is no longer there. I went into Tools and looked for ways to turn this off. I have changed my home page as soon as I installed.

Any thoughts?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I went to Local Server on the Dashboard and turned it off on the right hand side of the page. Just different layout from 2008. Thanks.

Why are you downloading DIRECTLY to the server and browsing web sites on the server?  Doing so is dangerous.  Download to a workstation - it's safer.

Thanks. It is a Dev Server and I needed SharePoint 2013 SP1 so it would work. I well understand what you are saying.
