it's a bug thats always been there, elevate a command prompt and copy and paste the following (enter after each line: net stop winmgmt cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem rd /s repository net start winmgmt reboot, restart security center
or disable it, as you can see it isnt worth jack as it doesnt know what security you have and havnt got, if you uninstalled every security program you have it would still smile sweetly and tell you you're safe. never use msconfig with vista, stop things from services, or it fights itself. click here
the first bit works, it deletes the repository, this forces vista to rescan and rebuild it. some security programs now remove themselves from the repository (nod and threatfire manage it) it's a bug i would have thought would have been fixed by now, possibly one of the first to be fixed.
Determined not to be beaten by Microsoft I persisted and after three or four attempts I managed to convince Security Center that NO Internet Security was installed at all! I then refreshed it in services.msc and it now actually agrees with me - but I'll never trust it again!
'I had the same issue not so long ago. Did you tried some registry tools to fix your problem? I tried several (mechanic, regcure,.....) but bought this one digeus registry cleaner (click here) cheap price and it did magic on vista. Just run registry cleaner, and all unused stuff will be removed. Please contact me if you have some questions. Hope it will help you.'
Thanks for your interest but the problem appears to have remained solved.
