The immediate problem of the failing service it with the Software Protection Servise - whic is commonly deleted by WiseFixer.

First make sure that Notepad is configured NOT to wrap! (click on View - UNcheck 'Wrap') then make sure that there are only 4 lines of code, all beginning with 'sc ', each followed by a single blank line.
If that's not the case, then you may have a corrupt file, so try downloading it again.
Highlight ALL the text in the Code box - select Copy
sc create sppsvc binPath= %SystemRoot%\System32\sppsvc.exe DisplayName= "Software Protection" depend= Rpcss start= delayed-auto obj= "NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService" password= ""
sc privs sppsvc SeAuditPrivilege/SeChangeNotifyPrivilege/SeCreateGlobalPrivilege/SeImpersonatePrivilege
sc sidtype sppsvc UNRESTRICTED

Open an Elevated Command Prompt window - click on the Start button, and in the Search box, type CMD. wait for the system to find the one file, then right-click on that and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt if you get one
Right-click on the C:\ icon (top left of the window) and select Edit... >Paste
You should get Success responses after each line of code
when complete, reboot

test the outcome, by running another MGAdiag report - there are other errors presnet which will also require fixing.

I Just noticed - this installation of Windows is NON_GENUINE - it is using an OEM_SLP Key on a motherboard which cannot possibly support such an installation.
Whatever we do will NOT fix that!
You need to revert back t o your original OS, and then upgrade to Windows 7 using a legitimate Upgrade, or purchase a FULL Retail License for Win 7, and install that.
+1 for the final diagnosis. I have seen very, very similar logs before, with those three missing tampered files, that service missing, and a dodgy SLIC (and I have had them coming to me for update support as well, in the past :))

Heh! - I was so focussed on the error messages that I didn't even look elsewhere untill after I'd posted my initial response,
FWIW, I've seen these file mismatches in what appear to be perfectly genuine systems - and the 424 error is most often caused by using WiseFixer to trash^H^H^H^H^H 'clean' the registry,
