They look OK - I was half-expecting one to be missing completely - we need to look a little deeper.
(it's easier if your copy/paste!)

Please run the following commands, and post the results....

REG QUERY HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\mpsdrv\Enum /S
REG QUERY HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_MPSDRV\0000 /S

That's OK- and the final line means that the service is actually running.
....back to teh drawing-board!

My AVG tune-up license had expired so I uninstalled it. Even used the avg uninstaller from the command prompt but I still have a bunch of files that refuse to be deleted manually (see attached). Is there a command to delete all files containing the letters "avg"? Name:  avg.jpg

You should not be able to see the content of the System Volume Information folders - they are the System Restore point data - if you remove the files manually, you'll break System Restore. Just wait a while, and they'll drop off the end of the storage tray.

The FileRepository files are so small you can ignore them - and they have no effect on the system anyhow.

The AVG folder in Tasks should be empty - if not, check Task Scheduler and delete any AVG tasks.
