1. Windows Security Center, a category listed in the Control Panel and a background process and the centralized location in WinXP SP2 that monitors the status of three major security functions:

? The firewall

? Automatic Updates

? Virus detection.

2. By default, Windows checks to make sure that Automatic Updates is set to download and install security and other important updates automatically, and if turned off or if it is not set to the highest setting, Security Center provides recommendations to turn it on or to adjust Automatic Updates. If it detects a problem with any one of these, it displays an icon and balloon message in the notification area "Your computer might be at risk" (click to see a screen shot), [Q875349].

3. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center - a DWORD value:

? AntiVirusDisableNotify -- default numeric zero with possable values of a zero or one.

? FirewallDisableNotify -- ditto above

? UpdatesDisableNotify -- ditto above

4. Administrative Templates \System\ SecurityCenter

? Turn on SecurityCenter (computers in Windows domain only) -- default not configured but possible values are On and Off.

5. Supplemental reading:

a. "Frequently asked questions about Windows Security Center (Q883792)."

b. "How to configure the Windows Firewall feature in Windows XP Service Pack 2(875356)."

c. "Troubleshooting Windows Firewall settings in Windows XP Service Pack 2 (Q875357)."

Note: Hopefullt you'll find something to tweak that may help out.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
