Was infected with a virus a couple of months ago. Ran combofix and a few other tools. Successfully got rid of it.
However now Windows Firewall/Defender wont start.
I've tried merging reg keys, etc. BFE is apparently running, however I still cant enable the firewall.
When I click on it within the control panel I see:
"Windows Firewall is not using the recommended settings to protect your computer"
When I click on use recommended settings, nothing happens.
When I try and enable Windows Defender I get:
"The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices assosciated with it.
Need gurus to help me troubleshoot
