Metro IE - Your current security settings are putting you at risk

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

This problem has suddenly occured after a restart. I do not know why. I did run malwarebytes earlier and it found an removed a few items. I have since uninstalled it.
When I open the metro version of IE, I get a blank page. When I open a new tab, I similarly get a blank page. On entering a URL in the address bar of any tab, I hit return or the 'go' arrow, and nothing happens. The same is true if I select an address from
my favourites list.
On the screen at the bottom is a message that reads: "Your current security settings are putting you at risk". It has an option called "Fix settings for me". I click this and nothing happens.
I have closed and re-started IE and the problem does not go away. Desktop IE shows nothing unusual that I can see.
I have checked that Windows Defender is enabled and it is. Ditto for SmartScreen and the Windows firewall.
I want to know what these settings are that are supposed to change, and how to do so. The Fix Settings For Me button responds to my clicking (it flashes colour), but appears to do nothing.
Thanks for any help. I did search for some time but couldn't find anything. It's all references to Vista, XP or desktop IE.

Error : Your security setting level puts your computer at risk. Click for more options.
Your security settings are below the levels recommended by Microsoft, putting your computer and information at risk from malicious websites. To reset the security settings to the recommended levels, click the Information bar, and then select
Fix Settings for Me.
