Message "Security Center is currently unavailable"

Q: When I run Windows Security Center I get this message:

The Security Center is currently unavailable because the "Security Center" service has not started or was stopped. Please close this window, restart the computer (or start the "Security Center" service), and then open the Security Center again.

A: To start the "Security Center" service, use these steps:
  • Click Start, Run and type Services.msc

  • Double-click "Security Center" service from the listing

  • Set the startup type of the service to "Automatic"

  • Start the service by clicking the "Start" button in that applet.
