I want to allow a program (iTunes) through my windows firewall, so i check it in the program or port list under the exceptions tab (in my windows firewall settings), then i click OK. When i reopen the window the box is unchecked again. Which means i can never get the program through my windows firewall. I think this is a problem due to administrators rights. Because I also can not delete the program from the list. I can however delete other programs from the list.

Anybody have any ideas, tips, remarks?

are you on a domain? firewall settings could be forced by domain policy – RobotHumans Jan 1 '11 at 16:58

Disable UAC, make changes, re enable UAC
