Windows Firewall Turned on Automatically

We donot have windows firewall group policy configure on our domain. The issue that we are dealing with is that once a PC is removed from a domain and added to a workgroup and restarted the Windows Firewall Turns on Automatically this has now happened for about 10 computers. What would cause the Firewall to turn on as there were no policies when machine is added to workgroup.
Please can you help

You can see the "EnableFirewall" value under each profile, and a 1 indicates enabled.....

Also....

start>run>cmd

netsh firewall show opmode

You can turn it off for the standard policy as well.....

netsh firewall set opmode mode = disable profile = standard

Cause there is a default Domain policy, and a Standard policy.

Default for Standard is usually "on".......

Check you local policy (by running gpedit.msc). I would say the firewall is on by default in a non-domain environment unless you turn it off.
