The Windows Security Center service can't be started

I continuously receive the following message within the Action Center:

Turn on Windows Security Center service (Important)

When I click on this message I get the error “The Windows Security Center service can’t be started.”

I am trying to apply the solution at the link support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2510301

However the Security Center service is not in the Services list.

I suspect that a recent antivirus update may cause this behavior.

You might wish to ask Microsoft this on their feedback boards. I think they would respond faster that way :slight_smile:
