How-to disable IE Enhanced Security

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 11:37 pm

If you see the below message when you launch Internet Explorer on Windows Home Server, the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is enabled, and you’ll want to follow these steps to disable it.


To disable IE Enhanced Security Configuration:

  1. Logon to your Windows Home Server Administrator Desktop
  2. Click on Start -> Control Panel -> Add / Remove Programs


  3. Click on Add / Remove Windows Components ( See above photo)
  4. Scroll down to Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration and uncheck the box. (See below photo)


  5. Click Next and then let the wizard complete the uninstall, and click Finish, and IE ESC is no longer installed on Windows Home Server.



  1. How very odd, I was just starting to look on how to do this. I was building another website to use with WHS in the early morning hours and the answer just appeared!

    Thanks Tom…

  2. Is there a registry hack that can do the same thing? I have one of those idiotic “new” OS from Microsoft that doesn’t have the Windows components selection.

    I wish they’d just fire the assholes that get paid to make our lives miserable by changin the UI with every release.

    • Which OS do u have. There is no sysoc.inf file under windows/inf on Windows 7.

      If you find out how to do this without resorting to a third party app I would really love to hear about it
