When I run spybot it says that my Security Center Disabled. Why is it being disabled and how?? What can I do to fix it so that it can't be disabled. I also get a box at the bottom of my screen that flashes. The box looks like when you minimize the page you are looking at. But it has no writing in it (example: When I mimimize Bleeping computer it says that's what it is but this is a blank box) It only flashes for a second or two then it's gone. It does this randomly. Any ideas what's going on???
Thanks so much

What security center are you referring to?
"2007 & 2008 Windows Shell/User Award"

It simply means that your Windows Security Center is disabled. You may have done this on purpose to get rid of the dumb "security" warnings if you had no anti-virus or one that was not recognized by Windows. Just right click on the result and choose to exclude it from further searches.

EDIT-- If you want to re enable it for some reason, open up control panel, and click on the Security Center icon, and re enable it manually.
