I have a program that is unable to work while windows 7 firewall is enabled. I have tried restoring the firewall to default and then repeatably allowing the program access. I have tried the more advanced options and they still do not work. I have resorted to installing a third party software firewall and behold I have found out I cannot disable windows 7 firewall AND disable network sharing and file sharing.This is super poor design. I do not want networking sharing or file sharing on at all. What am I supposed to do in this situation?
