    Has anyone had any problems with Windows protection Service.

    I got a Action center flag with a red X.... today. When I checked it said "Windows Protection Service is turned off"
    I tried to turn it back on but it gives me an error saying Windows Security Center Service cant be started.
    I know it was working.
    I any running Windows 8 pro activated.

    Has anyone else have this problem.

    Have you tried rebooting? This resets Windows and often cures a host of ills.

    Maybe you also should run the Event Viewer and check the Log Files about that problem.
