Are these computers on a domain? The GPO exists on a domain controller and is pushed out when the computer makes a connection.

Click on the Domain name in ADUC Right click go to Properties and then select Group Policy
Then
GPO > Compuer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > System Services > Windows Firewall > Select it and disable
