    You should apply Windows Defender service to Automatic in order to resolve the issue. Follow the steps:

    > Click on start button and type services in the Start Search box
    > Now, click Services in the Programs list
    > If you are getting message for confirmation then type admin password and click on continue
    > Select Windows Defender service and click Automatic in the Startup type box
    > Click ok, and if issue still persisting in your system then reinstall Windows Defender.
    > Type appwiz.cpl in search type box and click Windows Defender
    > Click on remove button to uninstall it and again re-install it by clicking here
