    I will wager that your Quick Heal Security program is turning it off. I would look there first to see if there is a setting you can change.
    Personally I have never heard of quick heal

    In all my years of recommended PC Tools Firewall Plus, I have never heard of this issue.

    If some program is turning off Windows Firewall, I would do complete virus scan on the entire hard drive.

    I would also recommend you choose a free Anti-virus software such as AVG or Avira.

    Also download and run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

    Some internet Security Suites turn off the Windows fire wall because they install their own fire wall this not uncommon

    Now I see what you mean.

    Disregard the notice, it's just that Windows 7 doesn't recognize your particular firewall.

    I action center choose Turn off messages about Windows Firewall.
    You should also go to Start > Run, and type services.msc. Scroll down until you see Windows Firewall and set it to Disabled.
