I am trying to restart the security centre.
right clicking the my computer icon and selecting manage then navigating to
the security centre properties. I have selected automatic start up type and
clicked apply. If then I click the start button to activate the security
centre i get the following message:
"Could not start the Security Centre on Local Computer.
Error 1068 The dependency service or group failed to start"

Anyone out there know what is going on please?
