Basically i'm not able to open the security center. The last time i tried to access it (which was like 3hrs. ago) an error message popped out saying that its encountered a problem and it needs to close. Ever since then that same message has been popping out every fifteen seconds. And also, the windows firewall never seems to stay on. its turned off every time i turn the computer on. So can anyone please tell me why this strange behavior keeps happening and how would i be able to fix it?

Did you recently do any scans on virusses/ spyware?. Which antivirus do you use? Do you have another firewall?
