I was trying to remove some malware "Win 7 Home Security 2011 - Unregistered Version" and I noticed that I can not turn on Windows Security Center Service. When I click "Turn on Now" button I get an errror box "The Windows Security Center service can't be started."

I am running McAfee & Malwarebytes.
When I execute "sc qc wscsvc" from the command prompt I get "The specified service does not exist as an installed service" .OpenService FAILED 1060:

Download TDSS Killer it's free.
Do a scan and reboot.
It will remove Win 7 Home Security 2011 which is preventing your security software from running.
