    Windows 10: turn off firewall notification permanently?

    I have ESET smart security installed on my computer. I have used it for years and I trust it much more than Windows firewall and defender.

    Ever since upgrading to Windows 10, I get notifications about the Windows firewall being turned off. I clicked the setting (in Control Panel->Security and Maintenance) to disable that notification, but it still pops up every 30 minutes or so.

    How do I turn this message off permanently?

    It's either "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer " /v "DisableNotificationCenter" REG_DWORD = 1
    or
    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pu shNotifications" /v "ToastEnabled" /t REG_DWORD = 0
