After using Windows 2003 for so long, I was used to going to Add/Remove Programs to turn off IE ESC. It’s different in Windows 2008:
Select the root of the Service Manager navigation pane, and under the Server Summary click Configure IE ESC, which is part of the Security Information section. A dialog box appears, letting Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration be enabled/disable separately for normal users and administrators.
As you’ve probably heard, the cat is out of the bag with Windows 7 and the Beta is all over the net.
Favourite 3 things so far with Windows 7:
- Faster startup time
- 4 settings for UAC – you can now set UAC so you only get the popup if a program tries to do a function that requires elevated rights but it won’t pop up if a user performs a function
- Network connections shortcut now accessible via a right click on the icon in the tray, saves a few annoying clicks
Thumbs up to Microsoft so far! 🙂 Scheduled for release at the year’s end – however July / August would not surprise me.
For those who haven’t found the downloads or activation procedure (I’m not encouraging either of these) have a look at these links:
