This is a Domain environment. Firewall policy is set by group policy to leave the firewall service running but turn the windows firewall itself off. This is happening on windows 7 x64 machines and Server 2008 R2 machines. When you add them to the domain and reboot the windows firewall service will not start. When you try to start you you get an error "Windows Firewall Service cannot start. Specific Error code 14" If you remove it from the domain and reboot you can start the firewall service. You can then add it back to the domain and reboot and it will continue to work at the next reboot. Once you reboot the second time the service turns off and you cannot restart it until you remove it from the domain again. Google is surprisingly blank on this issue,

Please post exactly what you put in your GPO regarding the firewall.  I suspect you have this set up backwards - you have disabled the service and left the firewall active.

The solution was to readd the local accounts for Localservice and networkservice.
