Windows Firewall not starting and other issues

  1. I have been getting help on cleaning some viruses in another forum, and I have run various cleaning and virus removal programs as directed (OLT, mbam, combofix, etc). Some viruses were found and removed, however now I am getting some serious problems like my firewall won't start and I can't start the service manually. My taskbar keeps reverting to classic, my volume controls don't work, and other issues. PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!

    I am pretty sure that my computer is clean, but I can't seem to get it configured properly back to how it should be. Please see link for details on what I have done and what problems I am having.
