Security Center

Recommended Posts

 Well Moms computer get infected and after following the instructions here I was able to disenfect it.  The problem I am having now is Security Center will not run on her computer, can not find it in services.msc.  The protection programs I installed for her (dumped the free mcaffee ATT offered her) are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO and System Mechanic Pro.  Any suggestions as I have searched the forums here and elsewhere.


Thank you for your time

If the computer is in that bad of shape then I highly recommend you not try to self medicate it as you can potentially make things worse.


I would suggest following the advice from the topic here Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and having one of the Experts assist you with looking into your issue.

i checked the link that pallanon listed and found the post he mentioned ...

the link leads to a page of download "drop in" registry entries ... this may be ok but not to be used by a novice without help .

the page itself is full of advertisements for "registry fixer" , driver update and speed up/clean out programs (etc) .

(in one instance a linked product page looks rather sketchy/bogus)

do not download or use these types of programs .

uuuggghhh ... <_<

From what I saw, it was a simple set of commands to reset the Firewall in Vista and above...


netsh advfirewall reset
net start mpsdrv
net start bfe
net start mpssvc
regsvr32 firewallapi.dll


and ...




Which actually has some good and handy prefab REG file fixes.  Not unlike Kelly's Korner.
