    "Your Computer Is Secure", but "Firewall Off" -- post ZeroAccess.e

      For the past few days, I've been unable to turn my firewall on in SecurityCenter, though the top of the home window says that My Computer Is Secure.

       

      On January 21, Security Center found and "Repaired (Removed)" ZeroAccess.e. Then noticed the firewall problem. Last night (January 24), ran a full scan in Security Center, and it found and "Quarantined" four instances of FakeAlert-Rena.cb.

       

      Today, I ran full scans with Security Center in normal startup and Safe Mode with Networking -- nothing found. I downloaded Stinger and ran it, in normal startup and Safe Mode with Networking -- nothing found. I downloaded Malwarebytes and ran it in normal startup -- nothing found.

       

      I tried to use System Restore, but didn't have a restore point before all this started to happen.

       

      Anything I haven't tried that I should? Obviously hoping to avoid wiping and reinstalling Windows ...

       

      Thanks,

      Komponist
