Vista Secuirty Center Not Starting ( Service not running with error 193 0xc1 )
Posted on 2012-03-26
I have a customer with a computer running Vista Home premium 32 bit
The Security Centre cannot start. When I check the Security Centre service it is not running. If I try to run it, it comes up with Error 193: 0xc1.
I have a feeling this is aftermath of a virus as there wasn’t any virus protection at the time this happened. A friend of the customer has now installed AVG free and run a scan. He also did the same with SpyBot and ad-adware. I completed this with TDSSKiller and Malwarebytes. All is now clean but it has left this problem.
Updates, Firewall and Virus Protection are running fine; it is just the security centre that will not start.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received. I will be relaying information to the friend of the customer and back again and also do not expect to get to the customer for quite a while so please bear with me on answers to any solutions or ideas. Thanks in advance.
