Security Centre too secure!

Hi, Running Windows XP Home, SP2, and for some reason suddenly I cannot access the Security Centre. I am going via Start/ControlPanel then clicking on Security Centre and nothing happens other than the blue bar at the top of the Control Panel box turns alternately pale and darker blue each time I click on Security Centre. I can access everything else in the Control Panel except this. Any ideas? Cheers

It sounds like some files have been deleted/overwritten. I have had a similar problem and had to uninstall the service pack 2 and then reinstall it. You may have some sort of virus that has damaged this "add-on", so you might need to do a full system scan as well.

Or use System Restore

Have you tried through Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools?

Thanks all. I have discovered that I can access it about once in every ten times I try...weird. I have had no problems at all with SP2 up to now so would be extremely reluctant to uninstall/reinstall except as a last resort. I am pretty well protected with AVG7, zonealarm, A2, Adaware, Spybot, SpywareGuard and SpywareBlaster, all kept bang up to date. I will do full scans with everything and report back. Thanks.
