    Hi TairikuOkami, I tried your CMD sequence and got the following results. Also, I checked Services and there is no service running for advfirewall or any service that looked like a firewall service. Yesterday I installed a trial version for Adobe elements (with Revo pro) then removed. Today I installed elements premiere, with Revo Pro. I think that is when the issue began but I am not sure.

    I forgot I am running a Surface Book

    Now I have really messed things up. I was looking at the start up in system configuration and decided to change the start to to minimal start up. I did not realize how minimal was with the Surface Book. I cannot even get the keyboard to work. So I decided to reload Win 10 from my thumb drive and it will only boot from the SS memory. I no idea what to do next since booting into safe mode does not appear to be there. I do not get to a logon screen.
    I will keep searching and hopefully someone will answer or I will will find the answer.

    I figured it out!

    Well I found the problem. I had installed Adobe element 15 (with Revo pro) then installed Adobe Premiere 15 (with Revo pro). I rebooted and could not logon. After restoring with the latest recovery. The firewall was working. I then installed Premiere element 15. re-booted the firewall worked all was fine. You can guess what happen when I installed Element 15 Firewall would not work and needed to recover again. I am getting good at installing with Revo.

    Now to figure out how to contact Adobe and let them know what happened. Their site is not the easiest to navigate.

    Some maybe skeptical but I proved it to myself.
