    Hello

    I recently reinstalled my window 7. I started editing my services when I noticed that my windows firewall was on (started). Should it be on? (it wasn't before)

    I set it to manual.

    With ESET Smart Security installed, it's generally preferable to have the Windows Firewall turned off to avoid conflicts in rules set by each. Also, having both turned on won't offer any real additional protection.
