Hey !!

well, my "friend" was supposed to help me reinstall Windows XP on my Patriot Laptop, we managed to do this...HOWEVER...upon looking at my laptop (after reinstalling), I noticed that my Windows XP security centre was no longer there, is there any way I can get it back as I would at least feel safer with it back on my screen. I am protected by Norton etc but still need and want my Windows XP security centre, I think he unlocked my PC security, does this mean my laptop is now useless, or is there someone out there that can help me get it back somehow, PLEASE HELP ME, I'M GOING INSANE :thumbsup:

Have you installed SP2 yet? Windows Security Center is a component of that. You also need to visit Windows Update.

You need to go to Windows Updates and download the updates it shows you need after it scans your computer.

Huh? Try all programs/accessories/system tools/security center and check your settings
