I thought the answer might lie in the Policy Editor.Open the Group Policy Editor (Start > Run > gpedit.msc) and navigate to:
Computer Configuration > Administration Templates > Network > Network
Connections > Windows Firewall > Standard Profile
Locate Windows Firewall: Allow ICMP exceptions
Set this setting to "Not Configured".
If this setting is set as Not Configured then open the registry and
Delete the "WindowsFirewall" key and reboot.

The GPE ICMP was already set to "Not Configured".
I went to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft and
there was no "WindowsFirewall" key. I did a find
in the registry and there was no "WindowsFirewall" key??
I'm surprised MS makes it so hard. It should be a
normal request and work the way I tried it first when it
was grayed out - yes?
Does it matter whether I go in
under "Administrator" or "Stuart" with administrator
Server (Request Security) and Secure Server (Require Security). EnsureLocal Security Policy > IP Security Policies on Local Computer >
The location does not exist.Look at this location as well
Nothing under that and I manually searched the entire policy area forYou could try a search in the Registry for "AllowInboundEchoRequest".
No Local Security Policy exists and there is no server around. I onlyAlso check Local Security Policy. Control Panel > Administrative Tools
Local Security Policy > IP Security Policies on Local Computer >
Server (Request Security) and Secure Server (Require Security). Ensure
All ICMP Traffic is checked.

No Local Security Policy exists and there is no server around. I only
connect via Internet and a Network Place local peer-to-peer
The 2 ICMP settings are both checked here, but there is also a ClientCheck 'Server (Request Security)' and 'Secure Server (Require
Security)'. Ensure 'All ICMP Traffic' is checked.
