Default My bro needs help...firewall trouble...

A few days ago my bro downloaded microsoft antispyware beta, it was all going fine until the next day wen he stated his laptop up. As soon as everything was loaded, windows security centre came up that the firewall was not enabled, so he went to security and attempted to start the firewall, however it wouldn't not even after a system restore!!!! To add to this his windows internet connection will not turn on, it either comes up with an error or says it could not start the internet connection sharing service, this means he cant go on wbow live!! It gets worse, now a few days later his Norton antivirus auto protect has stopped working, now i've just restored my comp when this happens but my bros laptop had no further restore points!!! I've included some pics of the errors and problems!


This first one is the firewall and virus protection disabled:



The next one is the internet connection sharing error:




Has anybody got any way to fix this!!!
Thanx in advance

Microsoft Anti-Virus is a must have tool, its so good at removing spyware and it is updated ... lol the other spy-ware softwares out there are not updated
