Internet Explorer 11 restricting local webpage

I have an .htm file that is saved on my C: Drive that when opened runs some javascripts to create a browsable handbook via Internet Explorer.  The problem is once we updated everyone to IE11 it no longer works.  The frame work is there but the scripts don't work.  I've tried everything I can find so far including allowing everything for Local (Intranet) sites, and adding the MOTW- mark of the web found at this site- https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537628(v=vs.85).aspx.

I'm thinking because the file opens directly from the C drive with a C:\Folder\Folder\file.htm path that I can't actually add security settings that will allow this file?  I'm not sure.  

I am able to edit the html in the file being opened.

I continue to get this message no matter what I do.

Microsoft is gradually withdrawing from support of active X in browsers because if the security risks and their desire to be compliant with standards that do not support anything as dangerous as activex, It may be that IE11 does not support it by default as previous versions did.

In any case you might find that you need to do a download here:
