What antivirus program do you have installed? Many antivirus and security
programs have their own version of a "Security Center" that take over for
the one built into Vista/XP. If this is your case, then the behavior you
are seeing is by design.
If this isn't the case, your computer is probably infected.
There is no way for us to know which it is from what you've written, so
please supply the missing details to get more help.
The First Question Of Troubleshooting: what changed between the time things
worked and the time they didn't?
The Second Question of Windows Troubleshooting: what is the malware/virus
status of the machine? If you think it is clean, what programs (and
versions) did you use to determine this?
Be sure the computer is clean:
