    I bought a Toshiba laptop last month. It has Vista Hom Preium on it and we've
    installed Office 2007 Student. Last week it suddenly started restarting
    explorer repeatedly. A message startes to fade in on the bottom left of the
    screen (Security Center Service not running) and then explorer ends, and
    attempts to restart. After ~ 5 seconds it repeats the process. I've restarted
    in safe mode with network and it does the same thing. I can't get far enough
    into control panel to check the security center settings, but I can get to
    the task manager and I looked for a security center process and didn't see
    anything that was obvously that.

    Any suggestions?

    When did this start happening?
    If it has been a very recent thing, then try a System Restore.

    If not, I don't know of any solution other than backing up files and doing a
    format/reinstall of the OS.

    Have you tried a system restore to before this problem appeared?

    Have you get Internet Explorer (No add ons) available? If so does that work?

    Could this be a malware issue, or similar but unintentional. The Skype
    add on trashes this system :)
