Problem: When I deploy a new server, file downloads in IE are switched off by default
Solution: Just recently its being annoying me that I have to enable file downloads in IE on each of the servers I deploy, so here’s a little function to enable it. Personally I have this script deploy when I deploy the OS. Hope it helps you, this script enables file downloads. Have it run as a Powershell script step from your task sequence and ensure you call the correct script location.
