group policy commands windows firewall only  (not other products)

more over there are two profiles "domain" and "standard" for witch did you disable it ?
domain is when the DHCP  DNS suffix matches the domain of the PC (is your DHCP distributing the right suffix ?)
standard all other cases


is your PC part of the scope of that GPO ?

use gpresult /Z to confirm it

if you don't want windows firewall at all, just disable the service. you can do it in GPO also.
