    Hi Brink,
    I ran system restore twice but it did not resolve the issue.
    I thought the problem might be in ie11 with some corrupt file problems so ran sfc/scannow, found no problems.
    Then used the reset tool in internet explorer back to default settings and this did not help.
    So I uninstalled ie11 from Windows8. restarted my computer. (using turning on and off windows features)
    Then reinstalled ie11 and again rebooted.
    I now have access to the enhanced protection mode check box and proceeded to follow your instructions.
    All now appears to be OK.
    Thanks for your input and helping me through this.
