Windows security center monitors checks if you have a firewall and anti-virus solution and also checks if automatic updates are on. Below is a screen capture of what it should look like, if it is titled different or looks quite different except for options being off instead of on you have a bug.

I have removed plenty of bugs from computers with users who use lots of Facebook apps.

If your anti-virus software does not find anything try these steps.

Run system restore and pick a restore point before problem started.
If system not working (which is likely if you've got a bug) you will need to restart in "Safe mode" to do that keep hitting F8 when computer restarts

Once restored run windows update, update antivirus definitions (if you don't have one microsoft have a free one "microsoft security essentials") and then run the windows Malicious removal tool. To this go to start menu select run and enter "mrt" and hit enter do a full scan.

If security center still not working go to control panel - Administrative Tools > open services. Find the security center service double click to bring up properties check service status; If not "Started" then change startup type to manual then press start button and then exit out.

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Generally, the Security Center will prompt you when one of your security programs is out of date or disabled.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