virus scan disabled cannot enable even after reinstall and multiple other av software

I was hit by some virus...it completely disabled mcafee virus scan...here's what I've tried so far and the symptom...virus found was fake alert...
I have XP OS...
Tried Malwarebytes shuts down after a few seconds, then denied permission to open file
Ran FixVundo--vundo not the culprit
DL and ran Superantispyware--found 381 infections--found a lot of "seekmo"--reboot to compete removal--upon reboot access permissions denied to Super...
Uninstalled and reinstalled Mcafee several times both through control panel and Mcafee uninstaller--still no joy on the scans still getting error starting on demand scanner --once it actually tried to scan but immediately stopper saying could not access scanner
I have searched for an answer to no avail...in desperate need of help!
When try to search for any page on firefox page comes up completely blank.
