Small annoyances with IE on windows server 2008 R2

So today i had to setup a VM to do some azure testing. Well this is all simple until IE’s enhanced security come into play. I logged into my MSDN account to download visual studio to the machine and the addon wouldn’t let me. After making sure everything was enabled i will still stumped because nothing worked. Well after noticing i was adding a lot of sites to the safe list, i saw when i clicked the button it was attempting to access a site within the MSDN domain but with an https protocol. So i added the https://*.msdn.com to the safe sites and magically everything worked. While the length of my frustrations were short it was still a annoying. So if i can save anyone else from this momentary annoyance i have done my good deed for the day.
