Server: Windows 2012 R2
Role: Remote desktop / terminal server

Problem: internet explorer enhanced security has been disabled for both Admin and Users
However IE is still Enabled for Users; Admin is OK

Attempted the following already but can't fix the issue

Tried #1: turn on, reboot, turn off: shows admin and users are OFF
  But IE for Users still show internet explorer still show is enabled

Tried #2: create GPO using registry on SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{A509B1A8-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}, set value to 0 (zero)
 
Tried #3: disabled any other GPO but only ones are: Office 2013 and drive mapping

Any recommendation is much appreciated!

could I guess you turned off IE enhanced security AFTER the users had accessed the server?

have a look at the registry. I'm afraid you need to do this for any user with a profile prior to you disabling it.

thank you!

the registry setting didn't help ... but one of the comments gave me an alternate solution ...
GPO + giving user temporary admin rights to reduce the security configuration

so at least we can get by with some of the sites but need to manually add to the trust list

...  but when user starts up, it's still ENABLED
