Windows Firewall activated after latest Win10 Updates (4/12/2017)
Has anyone else noticed that the Windows 10 Firewall had turned itself on, apparently after the last update on, or around, 4/12/2017 (not the The Windows 10 Creators Update that is available now)?
I noticed the Windows Defender/Firewall shield suddenly appearing in all of my Win 10 PC's taskbar (4 Dell's, 3 desktops and a laptop) after that update. Upon further investigation I found the Microsoft Windows Firewall indicating it was turned on in it's control panel (it was causing a windows discovery problem on a PC that also installed the Windows 10 Creators Update on). The Security and Maintenance page in the Control panel was indicating Norton Security was operating and no mention of the Windows Firewall being on.
I manually disabled the Windows Firewall with its control panel on 3 of the PCs so far (which resolved the discovery problem on the one PC).
Anyone know what is going on or why this is happening?
