McAfee Firewall won't turn on

Hello. I need help analyzing the following HiJack This log. I am trying to clean up my husband's computer after getting a malware infection. Something is still wrong because his McAfee firewall will not stay turned on. I can switch it from off to on and it stays on for about 3 seconds before being disabled again. I have run the following malware removal programs: Malware Bytes, Spybot, Spyware Doctor, McAfee, House Call and Fake AV Remover. All indicate the machine is clean. I have even run some in Safe Mode with Networking. I cannot pinpoint the problem. If anyone can make a recommendation it would be appreciated. Would really hate to have to do a Windows reinstall, but will if it means we can start fresh. Here is the log:

Re: McAfee Firewall won't turn on

Welcome aboard! Posted Image

 

Download ComboFix from the any of the locations given in this website:

    • IMPORTANT !!! You need to Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
      • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you are still unsure on how to do this, see here
      • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
      • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
      • If you already have the Recovery Console preinstalled, it will not ask for the following. If it does prompt, allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.


      **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

      Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

      Posted Image

      Click Yes, to continue scanning for malware. Please be patient and don't use the PC whilst it is scanning.

      When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please copy & paste the contents of this log (also found at C:\ComboFix.txt) in your next reply at your topic.
