In Windows Server 2008, IE Esc (Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration) is enabled by default. When Internet Explorer is started, a message is displayed that "Microsoft Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is enabled on your Server".  This reduces exposure from insecure web-based content attacks. But this imposes a restriction on web pages and applications that use the browser. It basically reduces their functionality and display is also not proper.

To disable the IE Esc, follow these steps :

1.) Click Start -> Administrative Tools, select Server Manager.

2.) Two panes should be visible right and left.

3.) From the left pane, select root directory.

4.) From the right pane, select Configure IE Esc link under Security Configuration.

5.) Select Off radio button for Administrators to disable IE Esc.

6.) Select Off radio button for Users to disable IE Esc.
