I ran the MBSA 2.3 against a Server 2012 Hyper-V Core installation and the MBSA 2.3 report shoes 'The use of Internet Explorer is not restricted for administrators on this server.'
This seems like a false-positive. I don't believe Internet Explorer is installed on my Server 2012 Core installation. Is there a way to prevent this error from being listed?
I can reproduce this same message when running MBSA (2.3) against a Windows Hyper-V Server 2012 R2.
This false positive is very annoying because we have to explain management / customers / compliancy consultants why this is incorrect stated.
You know you're an engineer when you have no life and can prove it mathematically
To get rid of the error try disabling IE ESC from the Server Manager control panel.
1. Start Server Manager.
2. Select Local Server on the left.
3. On the right find the IE Enhanced Security Configuration setting.
4. In the IE Enhanced Security Configuration dialog change both values to on.
5. Re-run MBSA.
This works on Server 2012 R2 Standard. Not sure if it will work on 2012 Hyper-V.
