Here is a question from one of our readers: When I access the Security Center on my computer, it says The Security Center is currently unavailable because the “Security Center” service has not started or was stopped. I ran the Services.msc command from Start – Run. but I can’t get the service started. I got the following error:
Error 1075 The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion
Solution for Windows 7
Restart Windows and try starting the Security Center service. If you still receive the same error, make sure that the WMI service is started and running:
- Press WinKey + R to launch the RUN dialog, and type Services.msc
- Double-click Windows Management Instrumentation
- Set its Startup type to Automatic
- Click Start to start the service, and click OK
- Restart Windows.
The Security Center service depends on the Windows Management Service. To view the dependencies of the Security Center service, run the following command from Command Prompt:
SC QC WSCSVC
Verify the output. The Dependencies listing should be exactly as shown below:
DEPENDENCIES : RpcSs : winmgmt
Windows Security Center’s default Startup Type is “Automatic”
Editor’s note: If any other additional drivers or Services are mentioned in the DEPENDENCIES section, you may leave a comment on this article so that I can provide further instructions on this page on how to fix the service dependencies.
