    My laptop has suddenly developed this issue of showing "Windows security center service can't be started" with my McAfee disbaled automatically!, I'm pretty sure I have picked up something dirty somehow from the net. Please can some one help me with this, I did read a similar post here but wasn't sure if the same steps would be valid for my case as they were little old. There is also a small pop up that says server busy with options to switchto, cancel & retry. I guess all these are a sign of some infection?

    At the moment I'm on safe mode with networking and have my McAfee full scan running although it does show me that the my computer is at risk. This full scan has not detected anything.

    I have also tried the following in the safe mode,
    System File Checker didn't show anything and I ran a Malicious full scan that didn't pick up anything either. Additionally I also tried fixing the registry which didn't help as well.

    Would really appreciate any other help...
