Is this a little baloon in the system tray? That happens because you have
something in your startup items that wants to elevate. UAC in combination
with Windows Defender blocks that. Take whatever it is out of the startup
grop and the baloon will go away.
To modify it, the easiest way is to click the flag, type msconfig.exe in the
search dialog and hit enter. You will see all the auto-start items in the
startup tab. Uncheck the one you want and reboot. You will get the flag one
more time, this time for msconfig, which warns you that you customized your
system. Select to run it from the baloon popup and then check the dialog box
to stop warning you and the warnings go away.
