Microsoft distributed Windows Server 2003 with Enhanced Security enabled by default - this ensured that it was more secure and required less configuration by I.T Administrators. However some of the Enhanced Security features may be unwanted and often times we found that we had to remove some or all of the Enhanced Security options - particularly where Internet Explorer is concerned. Here's how you remove Enhanced Security for Internet Explorer...

Microsoft Internet Explorer's Enhanced Security Configuration is currently enabled on your server. This enhanced level of security reduces the risk of attack from Web-based content that is not secure, but it may also prevent Web sites from displaying correctly and restrict access to network resources.

There are various uninstall options available such as removing the entire Configuration, removing it for users, or for Administrators only.  To clarify this see below:

Enhanced Security:

  • Administrators
  • Users

Step 1. Click Start, hover your mouse pointer over Control Panel, and left click Add or Remove Programs

Step 2. The Add or Remove Programs Window will be displayed. Left click Add/Remove Windows Components as shown below:
