    My Security Center alerts are always reminding to Turn it on. When I try to
    Turn it on, it says "The Security Center Service can't e Started", when I run
    Services, and try to Start Security Center from there, it says" Windows
    coulde not start the security center service on local computer. error 1083:
    the executable program that this service is configured to run in does not
    implement the service."

    what should I do?

    Perhaps you can find your answer via this link (it's a dutch forum) Just go
    to the last item on this page. If you cant enter this site via the link go to
    the non-member part and look for the discussion "HijackThis logs" and look
    for the posted item by HHHH and go to the bottom of the page. Just make sure
    that your service file is: "wscsvc"

    Click on 'run' (it's in accessories), type *services.msc* in the box,
    then OK.

    When the list of service's window opens, check to see that 'Security
    Center' and 'Security Accounts' are both set to start Automatically. You
    can do that by right clicking on the line and choosing properties.
    Reboot/restart your computer and check to see if it's now working

    ::Had the same problem in shop and was able to fix it by looking at a
    working vista machine the thing I found was that the Log On Part of the
    Properties was set to the user and not a local service like it should be
    I changed that cleared out the stored passwords and Vista did the rest.
    Started working after that. Hope this helps .::

    I have the exact same problem. I have tried all of the "solutions" suggested
    in this thread and none of them have worked. I'm almost to the point of
    re-installing Vista. Please, if there's anyone else out there with any other
    suggestions PLEASE share. I really don't want to go through the hassle of
    reinstalling my OS.

    Well, I did exactly as was mentioned below within "Security Center", it was
    set to "Automatic" but the "Services Status" showed "Stopped" and when I push
    "Start" a small window popped up indicating Error Code 1068 and would not
    allow it to start.
    So I'm still confused how to start Security Center.
    BTW the "Security Accounts" window was "Automatic and OK.
