Default error 1068

Hi guys,I'm back again for help. Been away for a few days and when I get back and turn on laptop find a notification that my 'Windows security centre is turned off' In the action centre I try to switch it on and get the reply 'can't be started' Well I go to Start-services.msc' find the 'security centre' is on automatic(del) . I try to start it and get the 'error 1068 the dependency service or group failed to start'
Malawarebytes can't connect, ccleaner crashes on 'clean' and system restore wont restore!
Help please! Alex

Boot up into Safe Mode with Networking to see if you can restore, but I'd also see if MBAM will do a scan in that mode.

Forgot to add - have you tried a reboot ?

See what Event Viewer has to report.

It also may be prudent to perform a chkdsk /f to see if it reports any KBs in bad sectors.

chkdsk/f wont run because it's being used by another process???.. I asked for it to be run next time the pc was restarted but it didn't occur Alex

Can you boot up into the advanced boot options and select Repair your computer then navigate to the Recovery Environment (RE) and select Command Prompt.

Enter bcdedit |find "osdevice"

For clarity that is a Pipe symbol before find and is the uppercase of \

Using that partition letter instead of the x I have used, enter -

chkdsk x: /f

This won't require a reboot and you'll see the full report on screen.

Enter exit to close the cmd window and ignore the error 50 it reports at the end - that is because it cannot create a Wininit report in Event Viewer.

I'm going to have to go for a few hours but will be back later.

If it does report KBs in bad sectors then I would advise you to create a system image onto external media ASAP as once a drive starts to go, it can deteriorate very, very quickly.

From what you have posted, did you leave a space between D: and /f when you entered chkdsk d: /f ?

From that cmd prompt enter rstrui.exe to see if you can get your restore points to work.
