GPEDIT Firewall Settings not staying put!

I have some security settings that I need to incorporate and well, they are not staying set!!

I need to enable the Firewall logging settings via gpedit, and every time I uncheck the box to enable it and save it, it always disables itself. Any help? Thanks.

1.)Download security check below.

This will show me what security software you use and what the status is of services such as windows firewall:

Downloading SecurityCheck

Open and run: SecurityCheck.exe
Follow the instructions inside the window that appears.

When done, a Notepad report opens automatically, called: checkup.txt

Please post the checkup.txt in your reply using the paperclip:

**Please Run sfc /scan now using option 2 in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back the results.

Wouldn't a better, easier way to do this be within the security software? I have Norton which keeps very large logs.
