Ok this is my moms pc so no idea what she may of done but the action center is listed as on but greyed out and not working, now how would I go about getting it back on. This isnt life or death but id like to get it working if we can. I changed themes as I found a post saying that could cause it and ive set stuff to default but no luck. She has Mcaffee, Malwarebytes and CCleaner running, could it be one of them? Also dual monitors if that might cause it also.

Here is a img of how it looks when i go tack bar, right click, sytem icons.

Don't necessarily take all of Action Center's suggestions as something you ought to do. For instance, it may tell you to enable Smartscreen which is not something I want to do. It may tell you to enable Windows fire wall when your antivirus is using it's own firewall. Be discerning.
