    Try http://windowsxp.mvps.org/wscsvcfix.htm


    If no luck,

    Try Restore the Security Center Service.

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Restart the computer.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
