GPO firewall inbound rule disappearing

Windows 2012 domain -  I'm setting up a GPO for firewall rules and i go into:

Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security -> Inbound Rules

I configure some rules to allow Remote Assistance, I see them show up in the editor. I then close and reopen the editor and the rules are gone.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try these steps and check:

Method 1:
Run SFC scan on the computer to make sure system files are intact:

Method 2:
Try to restore Windows Firewall default settings using the command prompt in Administrator mode.

a. Click Start, type cmd.
b. Right click on cmd and select "Run as administrator".
( If this method prompts to enter the administrator password, enter the password and then click ok.)
c. Type this command in the command prompt and hit enter.
    netsh firewall reset
