I figure you've probably gone off to your richly-deserved rest, but: Windows Security Center reports that:

- it cannot turn on the Firewall, no matter how hard I try

- it cannot turn on Windows Defender

- "AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012 reports that it is turned off."

Yet when I go to AVG itself, it claims to be running.

I am going to disconnect this computer from the Internet again, and see what you tell me to do in the morning.

I thought the we might have some residual damage so lets check that out now

run farbar service scanner

Posted Image
Tick "Internet services" and "Windows Firewall" options.
Press "Scan".
It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.

Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

Windows Firewall Troubleshooter Publisher details

Issues found
Windows Vista could not start Windows Firewall

Windows Vista could not start Windows Firewall
On a computer that is running Windows Vista, you find that the Windows Firewall service is not running. When you try to manually start the service, you get "Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 5." error message. This can occur if the "MpsSvc" account does not have the necessary permissions for the related registry keys. Not fixed

Set permissions for the related registry keys Succeeded

Run the fixit centre and select the windows updates fixit

Run it first in the normal mode, if that does not work then run in the aggressive mode

OK progessing onward and upward I hope

All these small programmes and reg fixes can be deleted from the desktop as soon as you have used them

Windows Updates:
Download this zip file and extract all the files to your desktop
Run the fixwu.exe file
This will re-register all dll's and ocx files


I will now reset the BFE registry entries:

Download the attached BFE.zip file to your desktop
Extract BFE.reg to the desktop
Right click bfe.reg and select merge
Accept the warnings


Then let me know if they have worked
