  1. W10 Enterprise - How to disable Security Center service?


    Belatedly trialing W10 and trying to tweak and customize it.
    I've made a lot of changes, including turning off Windows Defender via the registry and GPEDIT, but I can't shut down the Security Center Service - the options are all greyed out.
    Is there a regfix for this?
    Thanks.

    :)

    Disable Action Center in Windows 7?

    Unfortunately that doesn't disable Action Center, all it does it cause Acution Center to bitch about the Security Center service not running.

    Action Center seems to be a different beast from Security Center...

    And telling it to not display any messages gets it out of the way, the same way disabling the icon in the suggestions above does, but Action Center is still enabled and running.

    windows security center disabled????????

    i just installed windows defender on my computer (freshly formated new hard drive about 2 weeks ago) and it would not update because the security center was not running. so i went to msconfig and it was not in the services list so i went to services.msc and it was disabled. so i changed it to automatic and started it. after rebooting it was still running, so i restarted it again and it was disabled again, so i renabled it again. and when i went to the security center in control pannel it looked like this

    W10 Enterprise - How to disable Security Center service?

    windows defender & security center services keep turning off


    Are you running any other AV or did you have one running in the past? If you didn't use an uninstaller for the AV, then the remnants of it could be causing the problem. Normally any time you install an AV it disables Defender by default.

    If you are getting any error codes please list those, that will be helpful in helping you.

    As torre suggested, might be a good idea to do a reset or even a reinstall.

    Reset Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    There are also some suggestions listed here:
