After 6 years of working with Windows Server 2003 I finally made this script to disabe the restricted IE mode. Microsoft already fixed this feature for Windows Server 2008 and it can be easly switched off in Server Manager. For Windows Server 2003 you still need to open appwiz.cpl and run the steps.
The warning I was presented over and over.
This message make sense but not when I need to update latest firmware, drivers or work on a certificate authority as shown in my example.
- Create new file named disable “IE-Security.txt”.
- Add following text: [Components] IEHardenUser=Off IEHardenAdmin=Off and save the file.
- Save the file and run from command line SYSOCMGR.EXE /i:%windir%\inf\sysoc.inf /u:c:\IE-Security.txt
This made my server now less secure but my life easier to get this done.
