comment How do I turn off Windows 7 Firewall via script or through automation?
@CIA I would not turn it off this way (my earlier suggestion), but you seem to be willing to try anything. The bottom line is this is all coming back to your GPOs being mucked up. If you fix those you can probably fix this, and many other issues that I would imagine are going on in your environment. Slapping a band aid on it and calling it a day doesn't do anything. It's like turning off IPv6 because you get errors - instead of trying to fix it you just turn it off.

@CIA The first thing you should do is figure out why the GPO isn't working. It sounds like you have bigger issues here. But I guess you can try using powershell something like $service = "MpsSvc" set-service $service -StartupType disabled

Why not disable it with a GPO?
