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.

Power turned off but on charger over night won,t turn back on

Take out the battery, disconnect the charger, leave everything off and unplugged for 5 minutes. put it all back together and try turn it on again. If this does not work, there could be something deeper that is wrong. Might need to take it to a service center

Hp Compaq nx9010 Won't connect to Internet

install the latest service pack, i'm sure that's probably the issue, the early version of win xp didn't like to cooperate with wpa or wpa2. to check which service pack you're running (i assume xp because that's what came stock on those) click start and go to my computer and right click then go to properties, it will tell you which service pack you're running. the latest is service pack 3. honestly if i were you i'd just do ALL the updates as there are many security updates and patches you should have.

Dell vostro a860 won't connect to internet

Why not? Do you have the wireless turned on? Did you put the correct password in?

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

If you put the wrong password in, it will never connect. it will keep trying to connect but never will.


That means you probably don't have the password or the Authentication Type set correctly.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wireless network that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You can change the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless router and you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have it in correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left of the open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

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.

Why does windows security center show that my anti virus isn't working when it is. I don't have a green light.

What OS and what Anti Virus program are you running?
The OS will recognize some AV products and not others. You can tell the Operating system you will monitor the Anti-Virus software yourself.

Problem for Acer Aspire 5315 PC Notebook. This notebook will power up but nothing is happening on the moniter and even on a external moniter. I cannot tell if it is even booting as the hard drive light or...

have it check with the service center, the problem is no in your hard drive, or ram. or even your monitor, it has something to do with your video card, and you'll need to take out all to cover to get access to it, so I suggest better bring it to a service center to avoid more damaged

Try checking your Security Center, make sure everything is Ok or On.

If you are using two or more firewalls, I highly recommend that you use one, because it will conflict. Make sure it is up to date, has downloaded the latest updates to keep it high performance.

Otherwise, if it does not work, then you will need to take the battery out and use the AC adaptor instead.

Remove password on toshiba satellite a200 ???

If your satellite is one of computer models that displays a "Password =" prompt when the computer is turned on, even though no power-on password has been set then you'll need to take your computer to one of the Toshiba Authorized Service Providers. If your computer model is included on the list on this link Toshiba BIOS password issue then you can have the password reset free of charge. You might want to call their support line at 1-800-457-7777 or just go straight to any Toshiba ASP and have them reset it. Just make sure that you update your BIOS as soon as it gets fixed as this may happen again.
