usually this happens when a third party anti virus is installed. check to
see what anti virus is installed. The anti virus software is the one
responsible for the disabling of the Windows defender application in order
to prevent any compatibilty issues from arising. And if you force Defender
to initialize while the anti virus is active errors occur of this level..
This holds true with your firewall application as well. The big names in
anti virus such as Norto, AVG, Mcafee, CA, Trend Micro usally have their own
firewall application as well as spyware and malware protection suite and
they all disable the built in security features of Windows Vista namely
Defender and the firewall.. The Security center can be disabled should you
be annoyed by the constant reminder.. that some settings are off.
