Yes - the sysinfo shows a bunch of Kaspersky miniport drivers
installed (assuming I'm reading the German text correctly). Try
uninstalling it completely (check to make sure msinfo32 agrees it's
all gone after a reboot) and then try a reinstall of PG.

Afaics, registry mechanic isn't running, so shouldn't be a problem.
Tune-up utilities appears to have a bunch of services, so is worth
trying without.

I also notice you have daemontools installed. I know earlier versions
worked with PG, but I haven't tried in quite a while. Might be worth
trying removing that too.
