reposting since my question already seems to have fallen below the radar:

setup:

No Domain
Windows Server 2k3 running Citrix App Server for
QuickBooks 2009 Enterprise

Citrix is using LOCAL User profiles to login via Terminal Services
QuickBooks complains about 5 times about various IE security issues
(security level and trusted sites) every time a Citrix client logs in. This
is confusing and annoying for my newbie users.

I'm not terribly concerned about IE security on this machine as the Users do
not have direct access to IE and the machine is not used for casual browsing.

I have already uninstalled the Enhanced Internet Explorer Security addon for
both Administrators and Users, but I can't find an easy way to change the IE
security settings for each User. When I login as each User, it appears they
don't have the permissions to change IE security settings.

Can anyone help me with this situation? Remember they are LOCAL users not
Domain Users, thanks.

I was told to change user settings in the group policy snap-in, but when I
try to access those policy settings, it warns me that settings I make
there only apply if Enhanced Internet Explorer Security is installed. But
with Enhanced Internet Explorer Security I am not allowed to change the
Internet to medium security level, which is what I need to do...

I know these are local users, but is it a domain server or a workgroup
server?

there is no domain on the network. i suppose it is a workgroup server then,
but it only has three basic functions right now: provide citrix access to
quickbooks, run quickbooks, connect to quickbooks share.

OK, you should be able to set IE policy for all users in the Local Computer
Group Policy, from the mmc.
If you let us know what the error messages are we may be able to help
further,

as I said in my original post, I already tried that:

I am not allowed to lower the IE security level with Enhanced IE Security
installed, and when I uninstall Enhanced IE Security, I am warned that any
changes I make will not apply with Enhanced IE Security uninstalled!!
Lowering the security level is one of many things I need to do!

We have products that cost half the price of a new car that whine about that
and use Certificates that IE and Windows consider untrusted. If you call
their support, they have no solution. I chaulk it up to todays lack to
truely skilled developers and the lack of foresight of the same developers.

While software products have become more complex as time goes on,...the
actual true quality of the products is declining all the time as the
fresh-out-of-college developers just try to get the boss off their back as
fast as the can and get to that big party that night.

Sorry if I'm a bit hard on those guys, but I just haven't been very
impressed with software development over the last couple years.

Try using Firefox. If this is something within Quickbooks that "borrows"
from the browser at the back door,..then you may have to set Firefox as the
Default Browser. I don't know,...it's just a guess.
