I would do this.
Windows Defender Offline

Then I would remove and install a new MSE and update.

Hi Pankaj,

If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest try restoring your system back to a date when it was working fine which might fix the issue. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

For System Restore steps, you can refer to the URL mentioned:
