Windows Security Center Service

I need help with this problem bad. I have been useing MS Security Essentials version 1 for a long time with no problems at all. When the version 2 came out I downloaded it and then found out that I would have to delete any virus or spyware programs before installing version 2. So I thought I would give it a try to see if I would like the new version. I deleted the version 1 and installed the version 2. Was not lone before I was getting a red X in my Action Center notification by clock. When I opened the action center it said I needed to start Windows Security Center Service. Had a block to click on to start, will not work. Can't figure out how to fix the problem. So decided to dump MS Security Essentials as I have been told no one program can do all as I wanted to use the two programs I had lifetime for, Superantispyware and Malwarebytes. I was told that Avast free was a good choise to use. So downloaded it and installed. But no matter what I do I still get Windows Security Center Service needs to be started
This is on a Windows 7 Pro 32 bit computer. I have a Windows 7 Prem 64 bit laptop that I installed Avast on and Have no problems.
Can anyone help, please, or had the same problem that found an answer.
Thanks
