Thanks guys

The solution is a change in IE settings.

Open IE on the desktop and select Internet Options
Click the Programs Tab
Pull down the Choose how you open links, options...
Select, Always in Internet Explorer on the Desktop
Check the box that says Open Internet Explorer tiles on the desktop
Click Apply and then OK

There you go now from the Metro or desktop screen IE opens in the Desktop version

GAME ON!!!!!

Find that with Windows 8.1 Pro, there is less need to run extra Anti-Virus as W8.1 picks most of them up if you system is kept updated. This is good as now have more System Memory I can USE for other JOBS!!! thumb.gif

If you want to use Defender, then it's up to you. Personally I don't trust it enough. Although it's also possible that you have less "need" for security due to what you do (or don't do).
