I believe that Action Center replaces Windows Security Center in Windows 7. To launch Action Center you can click the Start orb and type Action Center into the start search box.

See if running sfc/scannow picks up on anything missing.

Follow the below tutorial to open and understand Services. This will show you the who what where to check things are turned on.
Services - Start or Disable

Once you are there find Security Center in list and highlight. Open Properties if necessary as shown in tutorial above.
Then make sure Security Center in Services is set like mine in the Snip below.

The SC service isn't listed in his list there.



Looking around it seems most users with the problem is caused by malware.

Might do some reading on the different suggestions in these threads.
