    Win 8.1 firewall will not stay disabled

    Hello all, I have Win 8.1 OEM and every time I manually disable the windows firewall through control panel it reverts back to being enabled when I reboot system. This is a hassle and was wondering if there was a remedy. Appreciate any help.

    I don't know why in the world you would want to turn it off permanently. However, after selecting "Turn Firewall Off", are you also clicking OK at the bottom of the window or just closing out with the X in the upper right? Clicking OK should make the choice permanent.

The word Metro is here to stay
The word "Metro" is like the work "ain't". We ain't supposed to use the work ain't, but we still use it and most of us ain't going to change. Now MS says we should not use the word Metro. But, the way I see it, Metro ain't going away. Besides, it ain't going to make any difference what we call it...
