Need help! Can't start security center.
« on: December 08, 2011, 10:51:11 PM »
Don't know when or how it happened but last night I was going to open a port in the firewall and discovered that it isn't even turned on. Tried to turn it on and get the warning that “the Security Center service can't be started”. I tried following the steps in this article but I do not even have the "security center" entry in services to check/change the settings for starting. I've done a virus scan and run both ad aware and malware bytes and nothing has been found.

Any ideas? I've spent all day reading articles and forum posts about this and they all refer to that security center entry which I don't have!

This will sound strange, but on your next break, shut down and do a defrag upon opening your machine again.  I've seen that fix stranger stuff.

Might sound strange but, I'll try anything at this point. I'm heading to bed now so I'll reboot and then start the defrag.
