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.
