The Security Center Service has two dependencies, Remote Procedure Call and Windows Management Instrumentation.  Look in Services to see if either of these need to be started.

I found the Remote Procedure Call and Windows Management Instrumentation and I started them but it still says it cannot be turned on in Security center service.

If you have restarted the computer and still have this problem run sfc /scannow.

 

Please run System File Checker
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and select Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt, it will look similar to the image below.
 
command%20prompt%20w8_zpsxjmewau9.png
 
Copy and paste sfc /scannow in the command prompt, then press Enter to start the scan.  
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems the scan will stop.  Type in exit, then press Enter to stop the scan.
 
If integrity issues are found in the scan please post the CBS log using the instructions below.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png then type cmd in the Search box. 
 
CMD will appear above the search box, right click on it and select Run as administrator.
 
When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste the command below, then press Enter.
 
copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled CBS.  Double click on this icon to open 
the CBS log, copy and paste the log in your topic.
 
This log usually is very large, for this reason you should use a host website like Dropbox to post the log.  You can start a free 30 day trial.  Once you have loaded the log at Dropbox post a link to the website.

yes I have BUT I just noticed in my Services.msc. I have a windows security socket tunneling , then it is Windows security account manage then it is server .. I was on a Microsoft support network site and there should be windows security center service but it is missing . It can be taken out by a virus of some kind . I did have a virus I feel that it is gone now . All I  am using now is Norton internet security and there seems to be no problems at all other than security center service error to turn it on .

Is this in command prompt box in safe mode ? Because I am not having much luck in finding it . I have noticed that when I put that in the run box down there I click on it I get a half second flash of that black screen.

If you are following the instructions you shouldn't have any problems.

 

Click on the start orb in the lower left corner to open the Start Menu.

 

In the Search programs and files box type cmd, the results will appear above the search box under Programs.  Right click on it and select Run as administrator, this will open the Command prompt as seen in the image in the instruction I posted. Copy and paste or type in sfc /scannow, then press Enter.  This will start the scan.

 

Unless you are having problems running this normally I would prefer that you not run this in Safe Mode.

Are you using a administrator user account?

BCs, is it possible that Norton Internet Security [if it is set too assertively] is over-riding Windows Security Center?  [Was going to add an MS url about it, but it's for Vista.]

Norton is very proprietorial and can cause problems of this nature.  But it shouldn't effect running sfc /scannow.

 

Edited to add... Norton shouldn't effect a Service.

Norton is the only antivirus I have running now and it seems to be running good but I should not stop Norton I don't think.

You can try disabling Norton while off line without worry about it.

Running sfc /scannow will either resolve this or point to the possibility that the computer is infected.  

 

You still haven't answered whether you are using a administrator account or not.  Clicking on Run as administrator will not matter if you are not using a administrator account.  If you are using an administrator account, try running sfc /scannow in Safe Mode.  To use Safe Mode with Command Prompt you need to open the Advance Boot Options.  To do this Start the computer and immediately start tapping the F8 key, keep doing this until you see a screen similar to the one below.

 

abow7_zpsc072f26e.png

 

Use the up or down arrow to move the cursor over Safe Mode with Command Prompt, press Enter to select this option.

 

When Safe Mode with Command Prompt opens use the same instruction that you used normally.
