I'm running Vista HP, just managed to get rid of Paladin Anti-Virus and now thhe Security Center won't start.
I've run Malwarebytes, AVG 9.0, Sophos SAV32CLI etc
Any ideas how to get the Security Center working?
Defender, Firewall & Malware Removal tool are Ok.
Vista is up to date, SP2, IE 8 works, although google does send me to some strange sites.

Start, right click computer and click manage. answer the elevation prompt.

Double click services and applications on the left and single click services.

Look for security center. click start.
Hopefully you wont get an error.

Right click security centre in services where it says start up type, choose Automatic
