How to Fix “The Windows Security Center Service can’t be started”?

How to Fix “The Windows Security Center Service can’t be started”? The title of “Action Center” in Windows 10 is usurped by a sidebar that provides a list of received notifications and a group of “Quick actions” buttons for different settings areas. It is accessed by clicking the Notifications icon in the system tray, or swiping from the right of the screen on touchscreens. Security and Maintenance (formerly Action Center and Windows Security Center) is a monitoring component of the Windows NT family of operating system. It monitors the security and maintenance status of the computer. Its monitoring criteria includes optimal operation of personal firewalls, anti-virus software and anti-spyware software, as well as the working status of Network Access Protection, Windows Update, User Account Control, Windows Error Reporting and Backup and Restore. It notifies the user of any problem with the monitored criteria, e.g. when an antivirus program is not up-to-date or is offline.

A service, named “Security Center”, determines the current state of the settings. The service, by default, starts when the computer starts; it continually monitors the system for changes, and notifies the user if it detects a problem. It adds a notification icon into the Windows Taskbar.

How to Fix?

#1: Open Run using Win + R and type services.msc

#2: Find Security Center in services box and double click on it.

#3: Choose Startup type to Automatic (Delayed Start) in Properties.
