This is my own personal sandbox development machine, and I'm getting a bit annoyed about the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration getting in the way of simple downloads.

Is there a way to turn this off?

Look in the security part of Server Manager. This article shows how to do it.

Thanks Jon - so, go to Server Manager, under Security Information choose "Configure IE ESC", and select appropriately from the dialog that's displayed. (/me mutters - "IE ESC" - and that's supposed to be discoverable? Meh!) – Jeremy McGee Jul 19 '09 at 7:57
Thanks a lot Jon. – Mohammad Dayyan Apr 12 '10 at 18:47
