Windows defender on Windows 10

When I try to run a scan on my windows defender I get a box pop-up saying 'Not enough quota is available to process this command'. Any ideas/solutions for this would be much appreciated but please keep to simple language as I'm not that hot on IT lingo.

Terry,

Run <<Disk Cleanup>>and delete (at least) Temporary files, Offline webpages and Temporary Internet Files as this will reduce scanning times by security software –clear your cache, cookies, and history, press Ctrl-Shift-Delete – then shut down and restart your computer.
