I'm trying to uninstall Internet Explorer Enhanced Security on Windows Server 2003. After I remove it from Windows Components and check it on a user, I'm still getting the annoying popups. Does anyone know how to completely uninstall this feature or just turn off the annoying popups?

    Is this Windows Server 2003 machine acting as a terminal services machine? – David Hicks Nov 9 '09 at 23:28
  • Also interested in the answer to this question, otherwise you shouldn't be browsing the web from a server. – Maximus Minimus Nov 9 '09 at 23:32

Has the server been restarted since the Enhanced Security component? The method suggested has always worked for me, but a restart was necessary I believe.
