    Windows Security Center Service off


    I was trying to troubleshoot issues with windows 10, version 1909, build 18363.657, and entered safe mode to clear temp files and then run a scan with Windows Security.


    When I opened Windows Security, the 'at a glance' menu was blank. I opened the settings and clicked on 'manage providers'. Under 'Antivirus' it reads: no providers; under 'firewall' it reads: no providers; under 'web protection' it reads: no providers.


    When I am logged onto my admin account and a newly created local account in a normal startup environment, the 'at a glance' screen shows all of the information indicative of a normal Windows Security senario. 'Manage providers' shows - 'Antivirus' it reads: Windows Defender Antivirus; under 'firewall' it reads: Windows Defender Firewall; under 'web protection' it reads: no providers.


    While in safe mode, I tried to select 'turn on now' for 'Windows Security Center Service' under the Security & Maintenance section of the Control Panel. I then receive an error message that reads "The Windows Security Center service can't be started." No solutions are offered.


    Can someone please advise? I feel like the security of my laptop is compromised. I've had multiple issues with Windows 10 since upgrading from Windows 7 about 3 years ago. I've tried reinstalling the OS, clean installs, etc. and still continue to have problems.

    :)

    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.

    Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    There are also some suggestions listed here:

    Remote registry

    • Press Windows key + R and type Services.msc then hit enter.
    • Services Console will appear.
    • Find Security Center Service on the right details pane > right click it choose properties >
    • Security Center Properties should appear > on the General Tab

    If this does not works & error still continues then there are more chances that your system is infected
