Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I disabled ESC in Server Manager on 2008 R2, originally just for Administrators but have tried to disable it for users and Administrators to try and solve this problem. Despite it being completely disabled I keep getting warnings as though it were still enabled.

You can see here I have it disable in my config and here is an example of the warning that I continually get, despite ESC being apparently disabled.

What changed in IE9 as far as the ESC goes that I can't disable it?
