HIPS 8.0 Patch 4 Windows Firewall issue

Hi. We recently started deploying HIPS (Patch 4). After installation, we noticed that windows firewall on these machines gets turned off and the option to control it is disabled. I remember that Patch 2 had a similar issue and a HF was released to fix it. Does Patch 4 have the same issue and is there a fix?

This is "working as designed" functionality.
