Windows security centre can't be started
I'm having a little trouble with the security centre on my laptop. Its been off for awhile and when i try to start it again it won't. Im not very computer savvy, but several files on my laptop have become corrupted and its starting to worry me. Any help would be amazing, I'd be happy to try and get any information you need, but remember I'm not a wiz, so keep it simple please

Sorry to hear you're having a problem. You'll need to provide us with a bit more information than just it's not turning on. You need to describe what's happening, dialog boxes, etc. It could be anything otherwise!

More info
When i try to activate the security centre a message appears say "Security Centre service can't be started". Also some random files have started to become corrupted, Skype, some audio files, a power point; there doesn't seem to be a link. Also I don't seem to be able to download or update any software. Any ideas?

Sorry for the late reply but I'm wondering if your hard drive isn't having mechanical issues. You should use chkdsk or another hard disk utility to determine whether your disks are failing.
