My OS is Windows 8 64 bit.
For 5 hours now I have been trying to fix this issue and just now, I have hit a point where my knowledge is not enough and I simply cannot find anything related by searching.
So I hope I can get some help here
It started out when I noticed that security center was disabled in the action center and it was impossible to re enable it, it just happened suddenly.
I ran a scan with malwarebytes which discovered some really messed up things
Malware.trace and a Trojan.sermis
I removed all these with malware bytes after several tries, then did a full scan which took a while but it did discover 6 more Trojan.0Access. again removed these successfully, I then ran some other scanners, also checked for rootkits and detected nothing. Finally I got avast free as a temporary av before I get something better, ran one scan with that too and it detected a VBS Dropper BU. Removed.
I didn't have any AV because I just upgraded to windows 8, MSE + malwarebytes worked perfectly in vista, only had 1 infection in well over 3 years so I never purchased any AV software
The computer is clean now, but the malware left me with a ton of broken crap-
Security Center got fixed first but its sub components are still damaged, including firewall. Other warnings went away when I installed avast since it probably replaces windows defender and they get auto disabled, but they are still broken so I want to fix those as well.
BFE was damaged but is fixed and running now
SharedAccess Registry key was also damaged but it seems to be fixed too.
MpsSvc also damaged but fixed
fixed some permission issues related to firewall as well.
But I still cannot start it, before I would get a different error but after some fixes it now says:
In event viewer it says: The Windows Firewall service terminated with the following service-specific error:
And windows defender: The WinDefend service terminated with the following error:
So yeah I really don't know what to do.
How can I fix this?
Hoping someone can help
