In start search box type services. In the list click on services (not the .exe if it shows). Scroll down to security centre and double click. Make sure automatic is selected and then start the service.

Thanks Lazarus.
I have got fed up with trying to sort it out I decided to use an Acronis TI Backup I did about a month ago.
I did not loose any data as I keep it all on an external HD.
All sorted now.
