Windows 7: HELP!!! Firewall protection off & Diagnostic Policy services turned of

HELP!!! Firewall protection off & Diagnostic Policy services turned of


My computer is stuck with certain problems and I am hoping that someone will help in figuring out how to fix them. The windows notification say firewall is turned off but I am not being able to turn it on. It gives the following error
Windows firewall can't change some of your settings.
Error Code 0x8007042c
I have AVG 2014 free addition virus protection and I am not being able to uninstall it.

To make things worse I can't run windows troubleshooter due to Diagnostic Policy Services being turned off. I have tried turning them on manually but this is what I get
Error 5 Access is denied.

The internet is working fine though.
Going through various threads I found that it would be a good idea to run Farbar recovery scan tool and Farbar service runner. The result files are attached below. Is there any way to get over these problems?
