SNMP vs Windows Firewall

questions i dont like asking but here goes ..... is it just me or does windows firewall in Win2K3 randomly decide to block SNMP ports?... i have over 30 servers runnng Win2K3 and out of the blue yonder today 3 stopped reporting snmp data ...... the windows firewall was turned off and ICS services were not running but still ports 161 and 162 were being randomly blocked ... so now i add ports 161 & 162 to the FW and it all works but when i disable the services to be free of windows firewall ports 161 and 162 get blocked again and snmp is down [back to square 1]... so simple solution is to leave windows firewall enabled & ports 161/162 enabled rite? ...but then um... nobody wants Windows firewall on thier server ... uggg ...... any suggestions from the guru'z on this? ... im almost sure im not the 1st to be plagued by this conundrum .... Thank you

windows firewall in Win2K3 randomly blocks almost everything, include remote desktop with SP2.
