Security centre message

Hi all,
turned on the comp this a.m. and got an action centre message "The windows security centre is turned off" When I try to start it a message pops up "Windows security centre can't be started".
Any ideas from out in the ether??
Thanks

While this isn't necessarily the fix I would run a virus scan and possibly download and scan with the following:

SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

See if these scans bring anything suspicious up.

Try looking in your list of 'Services' for 'Security Center' to see if it is disabled, if it is then set it to automatic and restart the service.

To open your list of services you can just Click Start >> Type Services and it will show in the list above

Thanks Dobbsy, that fixed the little buggar!!
Now I wonder.....I certainly haven't played with it so how did the "Security services" turn itself to disabled in Services??
Thanks again mate
