To open the MSE window try this Command

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe"

This file location is for Win 7 x64 / MSE ver 4

I don't have Starter, but you can search for msseces.exe to find the file location on your system.
You do need to wrap the command in the double quotes (as shown).

What version of MSE do you have? (Version 4 is the latest version.)

Do you have Real Time protection enabled? (MSE starts when Windows starts)

Please clarify what "That did not work" means.
What happens, what error message(s) do you get, can you post screen prints of the error(s) ... ?

Open MSE. Click on small down arrow next to Help > click on About Security Essentials. Another dialog box will open with current MSE info.
