Run services.msc as an administrator

Stop the Microsoft Antimalware Service (MsMpSvc)

Start an elevated command prompt (Run CMD as administrator)

Copy and paste in:

cd \
cd C:\program files\Microsoft Security Client\
Mpcmdrun -RemoveDefinitions

See if your problem is resolved

If you are seeing this on a server, you can perform the first step above and then rename Definitions Update in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\ and start the service once more.

This is a diagnostic message that is not reporting an error as such. If this occurring when your PC is changing states - i.e. entering or waking from sleep - then it is often due to some components becoming available before others which cause various failure messages as detection comes online before application.

Unless you are actually encountering a problem, this message is likely to be a false detection of a problem.
