Microsoft Windows Security Center Disabled



While running a check, the message came up that the security center is
disabled which will not allow me to get any updates or install my anti virus.
(Purchased a new one) Message # 2 IE search provider default - A program
has corrupted your default search provider settings. IE has reset this to
original provider.
First I suppose I need to enable the security center so I can get updates.
How do I do that? Something going on here because my PC is acting strange and
totally freezing up every time I use. Any suggestions?

It sounds like you are infected with Spyware/Malware.
You don't say what Anti-virus, you are trying to install.

Important re: Safe Mode
If you happen to find a problem that you can’t uninstall / delete, reboot
the computer, and go into Safe Mode.

key to get to Safe Mode from list of options, then hit ENTER.
RESCAN your computer with your Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes and Spybot S & D

If unable to install above Programs in Normal Mode:
Sometimes Trojans, Viruses, Malware, etc stop you installing and/or updating

If that happens, reboot into Safe Mode with Networking (from F8 list of
Startup Options), and install, update and scan from there.
