What are your anti-virus and anti-spyware arrangements?

The executable path for the Security Center service is
C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services, Security Center.
StartUp type is Automatic.

Hope this helps.

I am using Norton AV and I also run spybot and adaware regularly as well as
Defender. I am using ZA firewall.

What does the security centre do - is that what runs the windows firewall?

Do you know how I can change the path back to the correct one?

Never had to change it but select Start, Control Panel, Administrative
Tools, Services, Security Center. Double click Security Center to open
and try changing Path to Executable to
C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs.

You can find a Security Center icon in Control Panel when you want to
look the status of various components.

Well, no, if that is a paste of the path to svchost, you want
'%SystemRoot%/System32/'
Try typing :

%SystemRoot%/System32/

into start/run, to see what I mean.

Thanks to you and Gerry

However I can't see how to edit the path in services - will I have to go
into the registry for that? If so, do you know where I go?

Also, any idea how the path could have changed. The security centre seems
to work ok but obviously the service is not loading for some reason.

Hi Broooz,

Use the "sc" command.

SC
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/bb490995.aspx

Open a Command Windows and type the following.

sc config "Security Center" binPath= "C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe
-k netsvcs" start= auto obj= ".\LocalSystem" password=""

Thanks William. Unfortunately that did not work. If I type that message I
get no answer and it doesn't work. I also tried

sc config "Security Center" binPath= "netsvcs -k
C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe" start= auto obj= ".\LocalSystem"
password=""

but no response and

sc query "Security Center"

and the response is

[SC] EnumQueryServicesStatus :OpenService FAILED 1060:

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.


Please can you suggest anything else.

Hi Broooz,

You could try to import the required info into the Registry for Windows
Security Center. Copy the following into notepad and save to desktop as
"securitycenter.reg". Right-click "securitycenter.reg" to select Merge.

Or you can download the "securitycenter.reg" from my web site.

If the registry merge does not work then I would suggest you perform a
repair install of Windows XP. Be sure to back up any data or email
before proceeding. Normally, repair install will not delete or destroy
your personal data.

How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315341

When you have finished the repair install then be sure to perform the
following to fix Automatic Updates after a repair install.

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from
Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a
Windows XP installation

Thank you very much. I am not sure what the merge does.

I didn't realise the service was called wscsvc - can I just edit the path in
the registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc

to the correct path as I see it is wrong there?

Or another question please - would it be correct to do

sc config "wscsvc" binPath= "C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs"
start= auto obj= ".\LocalSystem" password=""

sc query "wscsvc" gives me an answer but I am not sure what it means -
basically it says the service exists and it is stopped. But it doesn't say
what it is.

Thanks again

Yes that command would work as well. Have you tried it?

If it does work then type:

sc config "wscsvc" DisplayName= "Security Center"
sc query "wscsvc" gives me an answer but I am not sure what it means
- basically it says the service exists and it is stopped. But it
doesn't say what it is.

Try,

sc qc "wscsvc"

What is the output?

At last it worked using
sc config wscsvc binPath= "C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs"
If it does work then type:

sc config "wscsvc" DisplayName= "Security Center"

That worked too

Many thanks indeed
