Disabling PING on Vista-64
 
Is there a way to stop my PC from responding to pings? I have tried enabling
the rules for Echo Requests and setting them to 'Block the Connection' but
with no success.

Thanks Rob.

Robert,

Did you apply the rule for the correct profile (Domain, Private, public?) To
make sure just block them all at first.

Thanks FFIS

Yes I did block them all and it has not worked. It does make you wonder what
they are for.
