Recently, on startup my Securiy Center would not come up. As in in the bottom right hand corner of my screen. I looked on google for the startup command for it, but really couldnt find anything.

I believe it is still running, my Firewall, updates and Anti-Virus, but what I'm asking is how do get it like before in the bottom right hand of my screen, so I know its running? What is the startup command so I can enable it?


Thanks in advance.


Edit: I can't spell Security. Bare with me. :thumbsup:

Open the Security Center by typing WSCUI.CPL in the Start, RUN box. Or, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Security Center.

I know how to get to it, but your not answering my question. I want to have it running at all times in the right hand corner. I dont think it is now. What is the msconfig-->startup command for it? So I can enable it so it comes up on startup, thanks.

Q: When will I interact with, or see, Windows Security Center?

A: When all three Windows Security Center components, Firewall, Automatic Updates, and Virus Protection, are in a secure and up–to-date state, no alerts appear. This condition is known as the "green" state. If any one of the three components are in a non-secure or undetectable state, a red icon that is shaped like a shield appears in the icon tray and a balloon message states that "Your computer might be at risk." This condition is known as the "red" state. If you are using an antivirus or firewall program that you monitor yourself, the computer is in a "yellow" state.

Hi Ch3St3R

Its always best to start a New Topic when you have a different problem so that other people with your same problem will be able to see it. But we can discuss this here anyway.

If this security warning that you are talking about mentions spyware then it looks like you may have the Microsoft Windows Anti-Spyware installed. Look at this page to see if that looks like what you are seeing.

Look for it in the Programs menu. There will be an icon in the bottom right corner near the time. Right click on that to bring it up.

If Real-Time Protection detects a change in any checkpoint, Windows AntiSpyware alerts you and provides the option for you to allow or block the change. In some cases—for example, when you are installing software—you can choose to allow the change in order to continue the installation process.

To configure Real-Time Protection, click Settings on the Options menu. On the left menu, click Real-Time Protection to view options for activating or deactivating Real-Time Protection. Click Alerts to view options for the type of alerts that Real-Time Protection provides.


If that works please post back and let us know.
