I'm on Windows Vista (SP1), and for some reason whenever I try to start the Security Center Windows service it returns the error code 1068, stating that dependent services are not running.

What does Security Center depend on, and how can I start those services?

Turns out that the following services need to be both Enabled and set to Automatic (or Automatic (Delayed Start)):

  1. Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  2. Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)

For me, enabling WMI fixed the problem.
