Ok..

it's possibly that is just a matter of enabling the service by setting to start automatically (everytime the computer starts) and get start it if it's stopped or disabled.. you do this first in the in the services tool..
for detail instructions check this link out:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/67737-security-center.html?ltr=S

if for some reason that doesn't work the other way is to do a clean install of the operatins sytem (vista).

hope that helps!!

Remove security parameters


If your computer is connected to a network or the Internet, it is advisable to use computer security tools, such as a firewall, to protect your computer from unauthorized access or viruses. Windows operating systems come with a built-in firewall, malware protection and Internet security. These settings are automatically configured to the factory's default settings when you purchase the operating system. To alter the settings for these security features, access the Windows Security utility through your system's Control Panel.

Open the "Windows Security" utility by opening your "Start" menu and selecting the "Control Panel" option on the right-hand side. Windows XP users can click on the "Security Center" link in this window. For Vista users, click on the "Security" option, and then click on "Windows Security Center." Click on the "Windows Firewall" option to change the settings for your firewall, if you are using XP. You can turn the firewall on or off, and also configure which programs are allowed through the firewall. Vista users should click on the "Windows Firewall" link in the left window pane and click on the "Change settings" link. In this window, you can block programs from passing through your firewall and grant access to new programs. Click the "Internet Options" selection to configure your Internet security settings. You can raise or lower the security level for different zones using preset configurations, or you can create a custom security level. You can also reset the Internet security level to its default settings. Click on "Automatic Updating" in the Windows Security Center to configure your system's update settings. In Vista operating systems, click on "Windows Update" and "Change Settings." You can configure your update settings to automatically check for updates daily or weekly. You can also set a convenient time for your system to update to prevent interruption. Automatic updating can be turned off by selecting the corresponding option toward the bottom of the window. Select the "Malware Protection" option to edit malware settings if you are using Vista. This option is not available in XP's version of Windows Security Center. You can turn the malware protection programs on or off using the arrow to the right of the "Malware Protection" bar. Click the "X" button to exit Windows Security Settings.

Windows security center will not turn on


The role of the Security Center component in Windows is to notify you of security-related events.

Generally, the Security Center will prompt you when one of your security programs is out of date or disabled.


If this component is disabled, Windows will no longer be able to alert you of these events. Additionally, if disabled, you will be presented with the option to turn it back on.


If you receive a message that states it cannot be started after pressing the "Turn on now" button, you must enable the dependency service.

Press the "Windows" and "R" keys simultaneously on your keyboard.


Type "Services.msc" in the Run box and click "OK."


This loads the Windows services tool.

Double-click "Security Center" to load the properties for this service.


Click the "Startup type" drop-down menu and change from "Disabled" to "Automatic." Press the "Apply" button to save the change.


The service will automatically start the next time you load your computer.

You may force the service to start without rebooting, by pressing the "Start" button.


You should now be able to press the "Turn on now" button in the Security Center without error.


Hope this helps

Hi,

It seem Windows 7 is fairly new for you. The User Account Control or UAC started with Vista as it is a security feature to make user aware on what is coming in and going out from your computer to minimize the risks of many things such as virus infection. You may want to disable it. Here's how.

Disable or Turn Off UAC (User Account Control) in Control Panel
  1. To user Control Panel to disable UAC in Windows 7, there are several methods to access the User Account Control settings page:
    1. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Account.
    2. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Action Center.
    3. Click or right click on Flag icon in notification area (system tray), and then Open Action Center.
    4. Type "MsConfig" in Start Search to start System Configuration, then go to Tools tab, select Change UAC Settings, then click on Launch button.
  2. Click on User Account Control settings link. win7-uac.jpg
  3. Slide the slider bar to the lowest value (towards Never Notify), with description showing Never notify me. windows-7-disable-uac.jpg
  4. Click OK to make the change effective.
  5. Restart the computer to turn off User Access Control.
I hope this works for you. Goodluck!

How do i turn off Kaspersky lab to install 2009 security?


Windows Security center is not really useful, and is known to have issues sometimes detecting anti-viruses. Kaspersky suggests that you disable notifications.

To do this,

1. Click Start and then click Control Panel.

2. Double-click Security Center.

3. In the Security Center, under Resources, click Change the way Security Center alerts me.

4. In the Alert Settings dialog box, clear the Virus Protection check box, and then click OK. Thanks for using fixya....

The control panel has no security center in it.


I guess you have turned off the security center in the system.
Not to worry. You can get it back by performing these simple steps:
Click Start.
In that, select Run.
Type Services.
Click on Ok.
Now you get a services dialog box.
Scroll down to the Security Center option
Check the status. It must have been turned off.
Double click on Security center. A dialog box will open up.
You will have 4 tabs namely General, Logon, Recovery, Dependencies.
Choose General
Choose Startup Type, and change it to Automatic.
Change the Service Status to Start.
Apply .
OK.
Now go back to control panel. You will see the Security Center Option.

Good luck !!!
