Windows Security Center Service has been removed

Hi all,

I have a Windows 7 x64 machine.

I had a virus, and just after removing it I discovered that both Windows Update Service and Windows Security Center Service have been removed.

I reinstalled Windows Update Service, but couldn't find where I can download software to install Windows Security Center Service again...

How can I reinstall it?

Thank you for your help.

Answer
The service has been deleted, not just turned off. So I cannot see it anymore in the list of local services in Services.msc

This REG fix reinstates the missing Security Center service.

Download/Unzip/Run the REG file, and restart Windows.
