Default Something did disable firewall, antivirus and some devises on my HP laptop.

Hello, and thank you for reading this.
I've got a problem with my HP. It happened over night the day before yesterday, seem like was a win update. Computer can not get to the internet, firewall and all security is disabled, it does not see SD, but still reads USB.
Yesterday I installed fresh Win 7 on it, and all was great, untill this morning everything repeated.
When I look at the processes most of the are stopped. I downloaded MWbytes, it did not show any infection. When I run ComboFix, it gives me 2 time the message:
"windows cannot find 'NIRKMD' make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. "
on every stage, it is running for a while now and it is on the stage 8 and I am lucky to have this 2nd computer to download tools I may need.
If anyone may know what I am up against to please advise.
Thank you very much for your help

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Please do the below so that we can boot to System Recovery Options to run a scan.

For x32 (x86) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
For x64 bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to a flash drive.

Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.

Enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.

On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt
  • Select Command Prompt
  • In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
  • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
  • Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
  • In the command window type e:\frst.exe (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
    Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please attach this file to your next reply. (See: How to attach)
