Windows Security Center - says Malware Protection OFF and Automatic Updates OFF

CIS 5.12.256249.2599
Windows Vista

When booting, the windows security center says that malware protection is off and that auto updates are off

I use CIS for both antivirus and firewall

Tried several times to reset and then reboot but same result

Anything else I should try?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Hi scanreg,
Only if Comodos GUI is showing no issues try the following.
If Comodo is showing issues the following will not help.

Try rebuilding the WMI Repository.

Open a Command Prompt window,

  1. Type NET STOP WINMGMT /Y then Enter
  3. Type net start winmgmt then Enter.
    Reboot might be required for it to complete.

Note for step 2 you can navigate via Windows explorer to C:\Windows\system32\wbem\Repository folder and delete or rename the Repository folder.


didn’t find a repository file so just stop/start winmgmt, didnt call for a restart

Hi scanreg,
Are you saying the Repository folder was not present or recreated?
If yes, something is not right.
Are you still getting the security center alert?
