"Microsoft Defender ENHANCED PROTECTION MODE" is a fake security alert and it has nothing to do with the legitimate Microsoft Windows Defender. It doesn't even have such protection mode, so this security alert is obviously fake and hides the presence of the malware in the system. If you've got this fake security alert then your computer is infected by a Trojan Horse.

Microsoft Defender
Microsoft Defender operates under enhanced
protection mode.
This is temporary measure
necessary for immediate response to
the threat from virus.
No action is required from you.
The Trojan horse displays this fake Microsoft Defender update notification too.

The fake security alert runs from (command line): C:\WINDOWS\update.tray-15-0-lnk\svchost.exe tray 15-0 1

In order to remove the Trojan that causes the fake Microsoft Defender ENHANCED PROTECTION MODE alert, please scan your computer with legitimate anti-malware applications listed below. You can read more about this infection here: Avast ENHANCED PROTECTION MODE. Good luck and be safe online!

Download free anti-malware software from the list below and run a full system scan.
NOTE: in some cases the rogue program may block anti-malware software. Before saving the selected program onto your computer, you may have to rename the installer to iexplore.exe or winlogon.exe With all of these tools, if running Windows 7 or Vista they MUST be run as administrator. Launch the program and follow the prompts. Don't forget to update the installed program before scanning.
