Default Windows Firewall is off. Yet, it says it is, but the menu is selected as off.

My windows firewall is turned off.
But at the menu, it says on. After I click on it to change it to off, it's already selected.

I talked to my buddy and he said he remembers there being a fix for it, but he can't remember what he did.

Ideas?

Are you looking at it in the Windows Firewall control panel?

Nevermind. Comodo was running in the background and I had no idea. I took everything off of the startup menu, which is why I excused it and didn't think it was it. Once I uninstalled Comodo, the firewall on/off thing was fixed. Duuuur.
