To start with, my McAfee antivirus found a few virus's. It told me that it couldn't delete them. Then my Mcafee totally self destructed. I couldn't reinstall McAfee to save myself. With no help from McAfee I finally was able to reinstall it by cleaning out every reference to McAfee in my Windows registry.
Now when I click on my "security center" icon there is nothing listed anymore. It simply states the following, "The security center is currently unavailable because the "security center" service has not started or was stopped. I tried rebooting the computer as suggested but it still doesn't work.
If I try to turn it on in services it isn't there. How can you repair this short of a windows repair.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD.

System File Check will show an on screen blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes
