MEI x 64 Device Not Started

I am running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit operating system on an ASUS H81M-Plus board and Intel Core i5 -4440 CPU and 8.00 GB installed memory.In Device Manager under heading ‘Intel Management Engine Interface’ I get the message Device not started (MEI x64) after Windows Update. Device had a problem starting. Question: Is this affecting my PC’s performance and is it the reason I get under ‘Windows Update’ the message : Your device is missing important security updates.
