"Windows could not start the Security Center service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access is denied."
Fully updated EEE PC 1000HE running 7 Ultimate, 32 bit.
Running Avast free version
I've looked at the other posts. Have tried:
Manually starting the service
Labeling the service automatic and trying to start it
Creating the Administrative account
The computer did have Comcast's Symantec's Internet Security suite at one time
Symantec's own special uninstall program run
Action Center still shows Security Center not starting.
Ran cmd /k sc qc wscsvc:
type 20 win32-share-process
start-type 2 auto_start (delayed)
error_control 1 normal
binary_path_name c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k localserviceNetworkRestricted
load_order_group ...nothing here...
display_name security center
service_start_name nt authority\localservice
I'm not seeing much info anywhere tying wscsvc to error 5. That's my problem. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
...apologies on the formatting. It started out bold, and I can't see how to remove it...
