Can't enable windows security center service

Hello there,

I have a problem with windows security center service (WSCSVC) which i can't enable it.

I am using Forefront Client Security and 2 days ago it detected the following threads:

Win32/Renos.LX
Win32/Renos.MJ
Win32/Zbot
Win32/VBInject

but all was removed.

now I can notice that the windows security center service is disabled and every time I try to enable the service, it get return to disabled.

Plus the Forefront trayicon disappeared, and I can’t open it again.

I've used Online Scan to find any viruses/Trojans but I've got 0 infected files.

I've tried to use Regedit to enable the WSCSRV service by changing the Start REG_DWORD Value Data from 4 to 2. but it returns to 4 again.


What should I do next ?
Please I need help ASAP
