    There are times when this annoying program will automatically turn its self on without my consent. Is there anyway i can ride my computer of this program...?

    Uninstall SP2?
    Though you can just disable the whole Security Center shit in services.msc

    save this as a .reg file in notepad then run it

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ; Disable Security Center (Red Shield Thing)
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
    "AntiVirusDisableNotify"=dword:00000001
    "AntiVirusOverride"=dword:00000001
    "FirewallDisableNotify"=dword:00000001
    "FirewallOverride"=dword:00000001
    "FirstRunDisabled"=dword:00000001
    "UpdatesDisableNotify"=dword:00000001
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc]
    "Start"=dword:00000004
    
    ; Override Anti-Virus
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
    "AntiVirusOverride"=dword:00000001
    
    ; Override Windows Firewall
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
    "FirewallOverride"=dword:00000001

    What "times" does the firewall automatically turn itself on?
    If you've disabled it, the firewall can't just decide to activate on it's own.

    It only turns on if you run the home network setup wizard or uninstall then reinstall network drivers.
