    Hello Tom, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    In Control Panel (icons view) -> Security and Maintenance, you can click on the Turn off messages about virus protection and Turn off messages about spyware and unwanted software protection links in the red boxes for Windows Defender like below to stop this.

    To remove the notice I discovered you need to open msconfig navigate to startup then select task manager

    then scroll down to windows defender and disable it when you reboot the notice no longer appears
