Windows 7: Windows firewall keeps turning ON, nothing can keep it down

Windows firewall keeps turning ON, nothing can keep it down

I've disabled it in control panel, and it turned on again. I went to services and disabled it, but on the next boot it's again on and set to automatic. I find that many services in Windows 7 have a mind of their own and it doesn't matter what you set.

Wish you luck
If it does not work its probably the AV (Especailly Security Essentials) that turns it back on.

Hi, stlolth.

What firewall did you install as a replacement for the Windows firewall? Was it a good install?
