Many type of spyware/malware can disable the security center (or replace the security center with their own). Download and run this scanner to make sure you don't have any malicious code on your machine and report the results back here.

Essentially the security center is just the status hub for the firewall, antivirus and automatic updates, you can verify that each of these is actually running individually but we would obviously prefer to have the security center fully functional.

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Generally, the Security Center will prompt you when one of your security programs is out of date or disabled.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

Althought this is not a solution to fox yor current probl it may give you some relief. After owning and tinkering with 150 computers I can honestly say that I have never had a virus, and I go to all kinds of web pages including known virus containing websites and still nothing.

Do as I do don't run or install antivirus or anti malware or even run the windows defender or the windows firewall it's just not worth the hassles and the bulls**t.

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 .
Now go back to control panel. You will see the Security Center Option.

Good luck !!!
