Click the Start W7 globe, in the Start Search box, type in: services.msc, and then press Enter.

When 'services' appears at the top of the search area, double click on it.

In the Services window, scroll down to >Security Center< and double click to open it.
Does it show service Status as: Stopped?
If not, what does it say?

In any event, select: Automatic and select: Start.

If the service fails to start, an on-screen error message appears.
Please post the error information in your reply.

Thanx. aaflac44!

In the Security Center dialog, General tab: Service status STOPPED, Start type: Automatic (Delayed Start) -- Clicked the down arrow on right, highlighted Automatic option. Clicked OK nothing happened.

Dependency tab: It gave a pop-up that said Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.
