Trend Micro PC-cillin anomalies after Koobface worm infection

I have a Windows Vista laptop that had a Koobface Worm infection.  I used MalwareBytes to clean it.  After a half a dozen passes it tests clean of any malware.  I also tested using MS Malicious Software Removal Tool and it tests clean also.  

When I got the machine the PC-cillin's last definitions update was in early March.  When I tried to manually update it, it gave me an information screen that said "The feature is still loading. Please wait a moment, and then try again", and would not update.  After I cleaned the worm with MalwareBytes, I eventually was able to get the virus definitions to update.

After that, everything appeared to be normal.  An automatic scan from PC-cillin started and I was about ready to return the laptop to it's owner.   I figured I'd run one last scan using the PC-cillin, but when I started the scan I was getting the same "The feature is still loading. Please wait a moment, and then try again" error when trying to manually start a scan or manually trying to do a definitions update.  There appears to be no trace of infections that I can detect through MalwareBytes, MS MRT, or HijackThis, but the Trend Micro PC-cillin is not working as it should.   I am attaching files for your inspection... Any ideas?

I ran the Hitmanpro and Eset online scans as you mentioned... Logs are attached... The first runs through produced a lot of hits but after a few passes they both came up clean with the exception of a file from the Hitmanpro called rpcnet.dll.  After a couple of clean passes I was able to run the PC-cillin, do an update and run a full scan.  It's scan found no infections.   I was again about to release it to the customer, when I noticed the pc-cillin icon was not in the task tray again.  I tried to run a manual update and scan and it went back to giving the same error.  It appears to be reinfecting the machine from somewhere. I have the system restore points shut off.  It also appears that Windows defender has some problems.  When I try to run it, it tells me it is disabled through a group policy.  I ran another Eset scan (2.5 hrs) and it was clean, but the Hitmanpro scan came back with hits again.

After running Combofix and rebooting it allowed me to get into the PC-cillin console and do an update one time... After logging user off and logging in as different user on same laptop it went back to giving me original error....

In the end I had to remove the Trend Micro PC-cillin... It appears to be conflicting with some other program.. It will not load consistantly on POR.  The single file that HitmanPro was detecting appears to be related to the LoJack that is on the Laptop.  It tested clean and I installed Avast A/V on it and all appears to be well...
Thanks for your help....
