take it you mean the inbuilt firewall and not a thirdparty software firewall?
which version of windows are you running?
i turn mine off and let comodo firewall handle it all in custom policy mode. No idea why turning it off would cause issues, it should be the other way round

have you tried a reboot after youve switched it off?
take it you have a third party firewall installed with you wanting the windows firewall off

why do you want the firewall turned off if you have no other protection other than what your router may be giving you
