Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 provides a new feature, Windows Security Center, to help you protect your computer. Security Center notifies you about the status of your anti-virus and firewall software, and the Automatic Update settings in your system.

There are malware and viruses which disable the Windows Security Center, and deletes the service altogether. This article provides a .REG file which helps you restore the missing Security Center service (for Windows XP SP2) which can be used in the aftermath of a Malware removal. Please see the Attachments section at the bottom of this article to download the REG file.
