About Internet Explorer Enhanced Security ConfigurationBy default, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 provides the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration set of security settings. These settings limit the types of content that a user who is at the server can view by using Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, the user can still view sites that are listed in the Local intranet and Trusted sites zones. By default, scripting on pages that are available from the Internet does not run. These settings help to make sure that a local user on a server computer does not download a virus or a harmful file from the Internet that can infect the server. Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration does not affect remote users who are viewing content on the server. Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration only affects users who are running Internet Explorer on the server computer.
