QuickBooks on Server 2008 Security too High

q: A customer installed QuickBooks 2011 on a Windows 2008 Server.  QuickBooks would not run because Internet Security was too high.  The suggestion from QuickBooks was to lower the slider for the Internet Security Zone but it is locked.

a: We found this great article that suggests running "Configure IE ESC" from Server Manager.  We did.  Then we disabled Internet Explorer Enhance Security Configuration "IE ESC" for Administrators.  We re-opened QuickBooks without the security error.
