I had some problems with malware that caused a PC issue windows security service is turned off, and can't be started. First I scan my pc with malwarebytes, found 8 malwares, clean them all, no traces left. Scan my computer for virus, none. I've tried enabled security center in services I got error 1079 the account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process.

Generally when Security will not activate it could be sign of a hidden infection that has not been cleaned.
I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
