You obviously didn't read or understand the warning prompt ZD.

It says: You've chosen to import settings that are compatible with
computers that DON'T HAVE the IEESC enabled. The settings will be ignored
where the IEESC is enabled.

It's Micrsoft's standard double-negative speak. Those who work with GPO's
know it very well. Anyway, in your initial post you said you had already
disabled the IEESC. So if you follow the presented instruction...click
CONTINUE on the prompt and then you can modify the security sliders to
whatever you want. It's a global setting so whatever you select will be the
default for everyone (including admins and TS users).

In our case, we only had to enable the setting Issac mentioned. We did not
alter the actual security sliders in any way. The QB nag was gone once
changed the policy.

Does it make sense now?
