I am running Win 7 on a Dell Inspiron 1525, and have noticed recently that the Security Center Service is not running, when I click the button to turn it on, I get a 'Cannot be started' message. But no explanation as to why, or how to deal with it.

Thanks Jock1e - unfortunately 'security center' is not on the list!
