Does OA turn off windows firewall?

Recommended Posts

Every time I boot up my computer, windows firewall is reset to off.This wouldn't be a problem having OA firewall anyway but Windows 7 has a glitch,

that so far I haven't found a solution to.

If windows firewall is turned off, network discovery gets turned on for some reason and I would prefer it stayed off.

Should I be looking for a bug or does OA automatically shut Windows firewall off.

Thanks in advance

OA automatically turns Windows Firewall off on install.

When you uninstall OA it will automatically turn Windows Firewall back on.

I have unchecked remote access in systems properties and have blocked windows media sharing in oa firewall.

Is there anything else I need to do to eliminate remote access or network discovering ect to my computer without actually turning it off?
