MS Server 2003 Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration

Given this MS Windows 2003 server was a lab server and I just wanted to eliminate the chance of this security feature from stalling or preventing me from doing lab work, I simply chose to uninstall it.  It seems there is no other more elegant method to disable the feature or stop the associated security processes other than actually running an uninstall process.  This seems drastic, but at least it's easy...

Go to Start | Control Panel | Add or Remove Programs
Then, Add / Remove Windows Components
Then, uncheck the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration

 - or to only remove the feature from Administrators group

Click Details
Then, uncheck For administrators groups

The uninstall is quite fast and doesn't seem to require a reboot.
