I hade this issue actually today, I did the following and it worked:
1- download any antivirus (free trial) any (I downloaded Norton free trial)
2-deleted the Microsoft essential (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client- it wont let you delete everything but delete whatever you can)
3-run a security scan with the free trial
4-fix or delete whatever was found on your PC (virus malware...)
5-unistall from add remove program
6-download the Microsoft essential and run a security scan again.
