Or, contact Microsoft regarding WIndows Defender.
I do not know what diagnostics you are running, but you should NEVER PAY for any 3rd party tool.
Also, are you attempting to use any anti-virus other than Windows Defender? If so, uninstall and remove ALL other anti-virus programs. You must never have more than one real-time anti-virus tool installed and running.
Also, tell us when this problem started, what you did at that time to your system. What other system monitoring tools do you have running?
I just found information that may be relevant. Your issue, and this is not certain, could be caused by an update from Microsoft.
Still, provide as much information as you can so we can try to figure this out.
