Red X Icon - Your computer is not protected

The Red X Icon has appeared a few times - Your computer is not protected.

Sometimes it says I have to verify my subscription (not today, though).

Currently, it says:

Real-time scanning is disabled
Spyware and potentially unwanted program scanning is disabled
IM scanning is disabled
Script scanning is disabled
Buffer overflow protection is disabled

I've tried the fix button a few times, it doesn't fix the problem.

I ran the Virtual Technician, which didn't fix it. Session ID: 20110802

I have Security Center 8.1 (ETA: sorry, I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum - can it be moved?)

Please help! Thanks!
