- Service: Security Center, error: "The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service." - From a newsgroup post: "There are two registry entries you should check in order to ensure that they have the correct values.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/ SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services. Scroll to locate and single-click on wscsvc, look in the right-hand panel for the value named ImagePath. Under the Data column, it should read: %SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
Now, double-click on or click the + sign beside wscsvc, single-click on Parameters and look in the right-hand panel for the value named ServiceDll. Under the Data column, it should read: %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\wscsvc.dll.
If the above values are correct, then the wscsvc.dll file may be corrupted. There is a copy of this file in the Windows\System32\dllcache folder (the dllcache folder is a hidden system folder, so you'll need to set your folder options to Show hidden files and folders and uncheck the checkbox next to Hide protected operating system files). Copy the wscsvc.dll file from this folder into the Windows\System32 folder".
