    Hello! I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a Dell Inspiron 560. Recently, I noticed an error message that Windows Security System needs to be turned on. I've tried to turn it on and get a message that says, "The Windows Security Center service can't be started."

    I have gone into services and tried to start it there. I then get this: Windows Could Not Start the Security Service Center on local computer. Error 1075: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion."

    I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware last night and it found one PUP that I was not able to remove, and could only quarantine it.

    Another system error that shows up in the Action Center is that I need to troubleshoot a problem with my computer's hard drive. I've run through the steps and did the hard disk error checking tool. But, it gets stuck and never boots back into Windows, so I have to do a hard boot.

    Any suggestions on what could be going on? This all started a few weeks ago when I wound up on some weird website. If this needs to go into a different topic area, please move my message. Thanks for any help that can be provided!

    I did a search of this forum and found a registry fix. It worked and all is normal again. :)
