Cannot install Google Drive on Microsoft Windows Server due to IE ESC security restriction

Due to IE being on lockdown on most servers (in my case 2012) it would not connect to the account.

Open IE and go into Internet Options. On the Security tab, click Trusted sites. Add https://*.google.com and apply it.

NOTE: When installing Google Drive, it can and WILL kill explorer.exe which killed off all my current data transfers without warning.
