Please start by getting Malwarebytes reinstalled: https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb-windows
Do you recognise the following Opera extension?
OPR Extension: (Translator) - C:\Users\kitka\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\Extensions\cnbpedcoekjafichoehopgaaldogogch [2020-02-29]
It looks like this might be the source of your Web Protection blocks. Please try removing this extension after Malwarebytes has been reinstalled and check if any issues persist.

We've identified the cause - Copernic Desktop Search. We'll be releasing an update to address this issue permanently in the future.
In the meantime, to mitigate this issue you can either temporarily uninstall Copernic Desktop Search or make the following changes below to your Exploit Settings.
Open Malwarebytes. Click Settings -> Protection -> Advanced Settings. Click Advanced Memory Protection. Under the Chrome Browsers column, uncheck both rows with "CALL ROP" in. Click Apply.

Thanks for carrying out the instructions, @scooterwoot.
Yes, feel free to. The reason we don't recommend leaving the setting enabled is that it will result in additional disk space being consumed by the more verbose logging. The maximum size of the logging for a public Malwarebytes version is ~110MB.
It looks like SetupAPI is taking too long to respond and thus the driver is not being installed. This is not unexpected on slow/old systems, which may apply to your computer (especially based on the logging below).

You have a corrupt/partial installation of AVG, which I would suggest removing.
AVG's removal tool can be used: https://www.avg.com/en-gb/avg-remover
I would also suggest uninstalling other programs you no longer use or have need for (e.g. Wise Care 365 is not a program I would suggest keeping installed. See here).
Afterwards, do the following:
Press the Windows Key + R on your keyboard. Type services.msc and click OK. Look for Malwarebytes Service. Right-click the service and click Properties. Set the Startup Type to "Automatic (Delayed Start)". Click OK.
Once done, restart the computer and let me know if Malware Protection is enabled or not.

We're aware of an issue with this particular setting not being saved across Malwarebytes installer updates (e.g. 3.6.1 -> 3.7.1) and have a defect filed for it.
However, we haven't been able to reproduce an issue when an installer update is not involved.
When the issue does occur and you find Malwarebytes starts up with Windows despite the setting being set to Off, what happens when you startup the machine again? Does the same behaviour occur or is it only exhibited with one startup at a time?
Have you noticed the issue occur with both a restart (Start -> Power -> Restart) and shut down/power on (Start -> Power -> Shut down -> Power back on) or just one of those options?
