For some reason I have no security center services listed in my
administrative services list so I have no control. I Know the firewall is
there, but I can't acess it. I have windows xp home edition and have
installed sp2. Can any one help.

Not that simple. When I open security center, I get security center is
unavailable because it has not been started or is stopped.When I go to
administrative services there is no security services listed.

Grammie,

From another working XP SP2 system, export this registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc]

Then, apply the contents to the 'subject' computer. Restart Windows and
attempt to start the Security Center Service via Services.msc applet. If
nothing helps, you may need to re-apply SP2.
