Looking at your snort.conf file, try putting a space between the '#' and
the first character.
Also you can try commenting out  the preprocessor lines also.

# preprocessor stream5_tcp

# preprocessor stream5_udp

 

# Does nothing in IDS mode

# preprocessor normalize_ip4

# preprocessor normalize_tcp: ips ecn stream

# preprocessor normalize_icmp4

# preprocessor normalize_ip6

# preprocessor normalize_icmp6

 

# Target-based IP defragmentation.  For more inforation, see
README.frag3

preprocessor frag3_global: max_frags 65536

preprocessor frag3_engine: policy linux timeout 180 detect_anomalies  

 #policy windows detect_anomalies timeout 180 overlap_limit 10

Look carefully at stream5_global and make sure that there isn't a line
continuation ( '\' ) at the end of those options causing stream5_tcp to
appear as one of them.  stream5_global and stream5_tcp must be separate.

Go to that line in your snort.conf file and comment it out, and try
again
