    Hi there!

    My aunt's laptop got infected with a virus (Australian Federal Police/Ukash) and I think I have removed it. I did a couple of Malware Bytes full scans and everything came up clear.

    Problem is, the virus seems to have corrupted the file associated with Windows Security Centre because it can't be turned on. All I want is to be able to enable Windows Security inc. the Firewall so I can give her computer back with the all-clear!

    I've tried looking for "Security Centre" in the Services, but it's not listed.

    I'd appreciate the help!

    Btw, she's operating on Windows 7.

    Thanks in advance! :)
