A flag is appearing in the bottom right corner on my laptop running windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit version.
On opening the action center by clicking on flag the message appears "Windows Security Center Service (Important) - The windows Security Center service is turned off" Next to this message is a button "Turn on now". When I click on the button gets an error message "windows security service can't be started". no details.
This is what I have done so far
1. checked my laptop for any virus, torjan, malware etc. using 3 different tools: McAfee, Windows malicious software removal tool, Malwarebytes
- No virus or suspecious programs
2. try to start the security services manually using services.
- Starts for a sec and goes down automatically giving the same message "Can't start"

Any help/tips

Just after you get "windows security service can't be started" go check your Event Log. There should be an entry. Get it and post here.
