What is WSQMCONS.EXE? Do I Need It?

My firewall popped up a bit ago asking if I wanted to allow WSQMCONS.EXE to connect to the internet but I don't know what it is. I don't want to let it connect in case it's a virus or some kind of MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware, so I blocked it. Does anyone know what WSQMCONS.EXE is?

GeekDrop App: VMWare Custom Launcher to Start and Kill It's Services

Alright, so if there's one thing that is a pet peeve of mine is when a software app installs a bunch of Windows services and then leaves them running at all times, even when no part of the program is being used. I come from as far back as Windows 3.1 (probably just gave away my age a bit there) where smart computer users tried to have as few programs eating up your RAM (memory) as possible.

Windows Security Center Service is missing and won't start! - [SOLVED]

I recently had a run in with the Windows 7 Internet Security 2012 MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware and now I have a red x in my status bar tray, clicking it shows the Action Center saying "The Windows Security Center Service can't be started". After Googling for hours all that I was able to find about this was to press Windows Key + R, type in "services.msc", look for "Security Center" in the list, and set it's Startup Type to "Automatic (Delayed)".
