I am using Windows 7 Home Basic 32 bit.
Realtime Protection: Panda Cloud AV, Windows Firewall, Windows Defender, Winpatrol Plus, Sandboxie and No Autorun.
The problem started after I uninstalled 3 other resident products.
1. MSE 2 beta
2. MBAM Pro
3. Trend Micro Web Protection Add-on.
I got the error in Action Center.

I went to services and tried to manually start the service. There I got the error message.

I found an old post, describing the same problem.

Most third party security AV/AS software will disable Windows security software in favor of their own. This is normal. Using more than one anti-virus security program at one time is not recommended. They can interfere with each other giving you gaps in coverage, cause conflicts that lead to system crashes, and tend to slow your system down by using excessive resources. Pick one that you like and stick with it.

That looks good, but you didn't....

Go Start and in "Start search" type in:
services.msc
Press Enter.

In services window find "Security Center" service and make sure it's running and set to "Automatic" startup.

Hi Broni,
I did everything, but could not start the security center service, because that's where I got the access denied message.

Hi Broni,
Yes I did that. But the service never started in successive reboots.

Open registry editor.
Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wcncsvc
Right click on wcncsvc, click "Permissions" and make sure, you have full control of that key.

Error 5 as i remember is because you are not logged in as administrator or using elevated admin permissions if running from a limited or standard account.

In vista and windows 7 the administrator doesn't have full administrative access until ownership is taken by administrator.
