Windows 7: Permanently turn off Network Sharing and Discovery?

Permanently turn off Network Sharing and Discovery?

I know how to turn off Network Sharing and Discovery for Personal and Public settings.

However, when I turn log off, the settings restore to the default 'on' for sharing.

So, when I reboot into Windows, I have to manually turn them off, and it is frustrating to keep doing that each time.

The Function Discovery Provider Host service is not running since I turned it to Manual (from Automatic) so that is not an issue.

I have this problem with Win 7 Pro and discovered the same issue with Win 7 Home in another computer.

Anyone know a way to make the changes permanent?
