    Hi Optical,

    Are you or some 3rd party program clearing the History of Windows
    Defender? This will cause the message that you are seeing.

    The popular program CCleaner has a option to clean the History of
    Windows Defender if you do not uncheck it in the Applications tab under
    Cleaner.

    Do you regularly use a cleanup tool? In that case, make sure it does not
    clear the Windows Defender logs.
