Windows 7: Windows Security Center service turns off after restart??

Windows Security Center service turns off after restart??

Seems I got an issue with Win 7 again. This time I get a message every time I startup the computer that the service Windows Security Center is not started.

I click the option to make it start and then it keeps running until next restart when the same thing occurs again.

By message I mean there is a red cross sign over the white flag icon in tray, if that makes any sense.

Not sure if there is any service I (or avirus ?) have disabled. I disable services people recommend to disable for better performance. Cant find any security center service in Services.msc anyway...
