Windows 7: Windows 7 Firewall Doesn't Work

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1
 
 
Avast vs Microsoft Security Essentials test....

First i disable Microsoft Security Essentials.(Capture 1)
Then i open an INFECTED file (i have this for testing) and avast dident do anything,NOTHING.
Then i tried the Test your Anti Virus test,again avast NO response.
Then i disable avast and enable Microsoft Security Essentials,and do the same things.View the results (Capture 2 and Capture 3)
MSE,Avast 2-0.
So i will remove avast and keep Microsoft Security Essentials.
I wish to <<cure>> my win7 firewall,because as i said before i want to stay with windows originall security i dont want to use third programs.

Have you followed Captain Jack's suggestion at http://www.sevenforums.com/670532-post5.html for the Windows firewall with Firefox?

Yes,i tried that too,inbound rules,outbound rules,restart,NOTHING.
A note...after many changes and restart i start firefox and is connect,i close firefox i start firefox NO internet.
I have done some changes in firewall,i close firewall,i start firewall the firewall is back to default NO changes.
I dont knowsomething is wrong and i cant find what.
Is there any tool to repair firewall?

Try this: Start-All Progams-Accessories-Right-click CMD-Run as Administrator
type: sfc/scannow and press enter
let it scan.
When finished try the firewall again
still got problems? Repair install

I honestly never seen Windows Firewall blocking Firefox !! Maybe reinstalling Firefox might fix it !!

I fully restore my pc with norton ghost image.
I started win7 firewall.
I dont like it,i dident like the interface and all the rest,ungly,stupid,with lots of errors for me,it cant remember my options changes etc.
Nevermind,as i said before,for the moment i will stay with pc tools firewall,simple and good.
Microsoft Security Essentials,simple and good.
And Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware for extra scan ever few days.
