Do you have any antivirus installed on your computer? If there is one, this may be caused by your antivirus. Most software disable the firewall because it could be a conflict between the two's interest which makes perfect sense to me.

You only have to implement one and everything will work properly. If you do not have one, then there might be a problem with your operating system.

Yeah, it's the OS problem and not antivirus system at all, that PC is free from antivirus software. I knew that the PC is free from virus, so I uninstalled it. So, the thing is how to cure with this problem? (rare)

go to control panel, administrative tools, then services, locate "Windows Management Instrumentation", start it, and try again... :)
