Security Center

There are certain tasks you should perform prior to the installation to ensure it goes smoothly.


  1. Install the Security Center prerequisites.
    Security Center installer automatically verifies and installs the software prerequisites on your system. This might cause your system to restart. Therefore, it is best practice to manually install the software prerequisites before launching the silent installer.
  2. Apply the latest Windows updates.
  3. If you specify a different Windows user than the default (Local System) to run the services, then that user must be created before you begin the installation process.
    The user must be a member of the Administrators group and must have the Log on as service user privilege.
