"Windows firewall has blocked some features of this program" pop up very frequent on many programs

This issue started around 3 days ago and has been persistent since then. Basically when i launch a program, such as chrome, a pop up will appear saying "windows firewall has blocked some features of this program". You then have do check / accept it. It does the same thing on games that i play on my computer as well when i try to connect to a game server etc and has affected the possibility of me hosting my own server. I have tried to fix this by adding exceptions to the firewall and even disabling the firewall yet every time i re-open the settings the firewall is enabled again and any exceptions i have added are gone. I have also tried a full computer scan for viruses which found nothing.  Below is an example of the message that pops up. It is not just for arma 3 though but even for Microsoft's own programs like Skype. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, my problem is exactly the same as Anju's. I've tried both step one (performing the scan with AVG) and step 3 and it had done nothing. I haven't tried step two but i dont think i have any third party firewall software and AVG firewall isn't enabled.
