Windows security centre can't be started? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have the windows security alert at the bottom right. I click it and it takes be to windows security centre and shows the firewall is turned off, when I try to turn it on it says 'Windows security centre can't be started'. I have read around and tried a few things. I have gone into services and tried to manually enable it, it works for about 20 secs the disables itself again. I have run various anti virus, malware etc programs and none have solved the problem. I tried running windows defender offline but it found no problems. I have unistalled recently installed programs, which didn't help. I use this computer for working from home so need the firewall enabled to access my virtual work systems. I am running vista 32bit. What else can I try?

    Thanks
