Windows 7: Windows Security Center won't turn on

Does it offer Startup Repair? Accept it.

If it's Safe Mode then will it enter Safe Mode?

If you reboot and tap the F8 key vigorously, will it offer Repair My Computer? Try several times.

If repair is offered, accept and reboot. If not or it still won't start, reboot into Repair to open a Command Line to confirm Partition Marked Active is System REserved (preferred) or C, then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

Remember that it may not repair or start if not fully cleaned up so you'll want to complete the clean up with Cottonball as soon as he gets online.

f8 got me startup repair, but says couldn't detect any problems. Safe mode just goes to black screen with pointer after it loads files... That fix I applied... Is it lost everytime I reboot?

Try System Restore from the F8 System Recovery Options.

Remember that it may not repair or start if not fully disinfected up so you'll want to complete the clean up with Cottonball as soon as he gets online.

Did you run SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot
at least three times?

Did you run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times?

It says no restore points still... I don't want to give up.

I have a small rant... When I had windows Xp, there was a boot disk you could burn called "Roadstarter boot cd". This thing would boot any pc, pre windows 7. What the heck doesn't something like this exist for win 7.

I just saw this now.. I followed the Partition Marked Active link and followed instructions for cmd prompt. I made "partition 3" active, that's the one with the most space left and where windows in installed. That's the one you I was to select, yes? same issue after reboot, black screen mouse pointer

I ran startup repair 3 times after hitting F8, even though it says everytime that it "couldn't detect a problem"

First Try System Restore from the System Recovery Options. Use the disk if required.

Do you have the 100mb System REserved partition which as I wrote is preferred to be marked Active. If so you should try it first?

In some HP's the Recovery partition could also be the partition marked Active. Did you note which one was already marked Active?

If not then mark each one Active and try 3 separate Startup REpairs to see if it will start.

System restore doesn't work. Startup repair doesn't find problems (system is booting fine). SFC says "patch install is pending". Display what's pending (offline with DISM) fails.

Not much we can do anymore in my opinion.

Expensive lesson... make backups!!

There are no restore points shown in system restore.

Ok, see screen shots. I manually selected each partition and made each active, all within the same cmd session. Correct? or did you want me to make partition 1 active first, then reboot and repair 3 times, then go back and makes 2 active, etc, and so on? This time, I made all 3 active together, then rebooted, hit f8 and ran startup repair 3 times. Same thing.
