The Security messages in Action center settings are greyed out. Can someone help me to enable them?

Thanks

Try disabling your antivirus, unless it is Microsoft Security Essentials. Then reboot and let us know.

Thanks rich. I tried your suggestion but its still all greyed out. Are these settings controlled in the services possibly?
I don't know if I disabled something which turned this feature off.

I think I found the service that runs this but is this the setting for most people? Automatic (delayed start)
I can't find anything googling this problem. How on earth is it greyed out like this?
very confusing.
