The Security Center service runs as LocalSystem in a shared process. It shares an executable file with other services. If the Security Center fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows XP startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the wscsvc service has failed to start.
Security Center will not start, if the following services are stopped or disabled:
1. Select your Windows XP edition and Service Pack, and then click on the Download button below.
2. Save the RestoreSecurityCenterWindowsXP.bat file to any folder on your hard drive.
3. Run the downloaded batch file.
4. Restart the computer to save changes.
Note. Make sure that the
wscsvc.dll file exists in the
%WinDir%\system32 folder. If this file is missing you can try to restore it from your Windows XP installation media.
