The enhanced security configuration applies to different user accounts according to the type of installation. The following table describes how the users are affected.

Type of Installation Enhanced security configuration is applied to
Administrators? Power Users? Limited Users? Restricted Users?
Upgrading the operating system Yes Yes No No
Unattended installation of the operating system Yes Yes No No
Manual installation of Terminal Services Yes Yes Yes** Yes**

** During the manual Terminal Services installation, you are prompted to disable Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration for users. This allows users to run a terminal server session without restrictions.

For a better experience when Terminal Services is enabled, you should remove the enhanced security configuration from members of the Users group. These users have fewer privileges on the server, so they present a lower level of risk if they are victims of an attack.
