Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
Let me. It tells me the Security Center Service can't be started. I'm not sure even how it got turned off. Thanks
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.

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

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Generally, the Security Center will prompt you when one of your security programs is out of date or disabled.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