    Yes, I know I can kill the firewall completely, but it's just the private profile that is causing my problem.

    Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

    netsh advfirewall set PrivateProfile state off

    Found a fix. You need to disable the windows firewall service in services (services.msc) and restart your computer.
    That also disables Windows Updates and store app updates, so unless you update manually, I do not recommend it.

    Well, do you even bother if the firewall actually is on or not? Windows aint secure anyways lol

    TairikuOkami - Thanks for the tip, but this is no different than using the Firewall settings to turn off the Private Firewall. Within seconds, Windows 10 turns it back on.
