Security Center problems: doesn't recognize antivirus

I recently had to reinstall XP Pro SP2 using the "in place upgrade"
method. After I downloaded and installed all the patches, something
started happening with the Windows Security Center. Please note that I
have Trend Micro Officescan installed on this and 20 other computers,
and this is the only one I'm having a problem with.

After a reboot and login, the Security Center pops up almost
immediately saying that Virus Protection is turned off. However, I
know for a fact that it is turned ON (I have verified this in several
ways). If restart the Security Center service, it seems to recognize
that Office Scan is installed and does not bother me until the next
restart.

Is there any way to fix this, or is this a sign of a bigger problem?

Thanks.
Joseph

Try this:

Start | Run | cmd | Enter

net stop winmgmt | Enter
cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem | Enter
ren repository repository.old | Enter
net start winmgmt | enter
