Windows 7: Windows Firewall Service unable to activate, SFC scan unable to work

Windows Firewall Service unable to activate, SFC scan unable to work

Well I got a big problem.

A couple days ago I noticed network connectivity issues. Random connection drops, overall bad connection, etc. I recently had some really bad malware and I removed it, so I suspected leftover malware from the start. I went to check Windows Update to see if I missed a security update, and it wasn't even on my computer. Something removed the service completely off my computer, so I found a .reg to fix it. I then started Windows Update and found that I had 30 updates missing and updated all of them successfully.

I then decided to see what was going on with my Windows Firewall, only to find that it was also removed. Wasn't in my services or anything. So I downloaded the .reg to fix that, tried to activate the service, only to run into another roadblock that I still haven't been able to fix, an error stating

"The Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service on local computer started then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs".

Ok. So I checked my services again and I believe that some more were completely missing(Base Filtering Engine, NSI proxy Service). So to try and remedy this, I attempted an sfc /scannow in elevated cmd prompt.

Then another brick wall. I get to 59% and then I get this message

"Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation".

Trustedinstaller service is turned on, so I have no idea why I'm getting this message. But I tried doing the command again, both in safe mode and windows repair. In safe mode I get the same error, and in windows repair trying to execute the command only gives me another error saying that I have to restart windows to perform the sfc because its in the process of repairing (even though it shouldn't be). I restarted again and tried to do the command in repair mode yet again only to get the same message.

My computer still operates normally, its just I really want to turn on Windows Firewall so I don't get completely destroyed by more infections. Installing Windows again is not an option, as I don't have the disc or even a working disc drive. I'm also trying to save my hard drive and don't have anything else to back it up on (I also have no money) so I'm trying to get this fixed without wiping my system.
