My pc was infected a virus recently and it blocks me from turning my security center. I went through a virus scan and deleted it successfully but somehow I still cannot turn on the security center. How could I do to solve this?
Type SERVICES.MSC in the Search dialog box on the Start Menu, hold down Ctrl and Shift and Enter key to run as Administrator. Scroll down to the Security Center service in the window that opens up. Is its status set to Started and Startup Type set to Automatic - Delayed Start? If not, double click it and make those changes to the settings. Also check that the Log On tab shows Log on as This Account: Local Service. If the Log On tab does not show Log on as Local Service, then use these instructions (copied from Windows Help) to change that:
I tried the method you told me to do, but my security center still cannot be turned on (actually I tried this before I post my problem up here). Now wat can I do is let you know more about the detail of my problem. Whenever I turn on my pc a small window will popped out and stated "Application failed to initialize: 0x80070006. The handle is invalid." Anything you need to know bout it?
If this was a recent malware infection have you considered using System restore to restore to a point before your system was compromised/corrupted?
You also might want to consider using a better antivirus/antimalware program. Try this online scanner/cleaner:http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/
