Hello everyone. I just stumbled across this site when looking for help and it looks like there's such a wealth of information here. Great to see!

My problem. When I boot up my computer I always get a red pop up box in the bottom right hand corner that says "security center disabled" or something to effect. So I went into the Services area and located "Security Center". Under status it says "started" but under Startup Type it says "disabled". Under Log On As it says Local Service. I went into properties and adjusted the Startup Type to "Automatic", hit apply and went back to the Services box. There it is corrected with Started and Automatic but once I go back into properties, it says disabled under Startup Type again. I did this about four times and for some reason it is not saving my "Automatic" setting but rather forces the Disabled setting. I'm not understanding the problem and I don't know what to do about it. Can anyone please help me with this?

I did the full scan of Kaspersky earlier and came up with nothing...which I guess is a good thing! I'll try a few other scans also.
