What is Microsoft Security Center?
With the installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), it contained a collection of new technologies designed to help keep your PC and your personal information more secure. One of those tools that makes it easier to monitor these settings is with the new Windows Security Center, available through the Control Panel.
