    hey
    neone knows how to permanently disable the win xp firewall. i have gone through the recommendations and checked on the box that i have a firewall installed and will manage myself but of no good.
    i went through the security centre and unchecked on "" check for firewall" but on bext bootup i still get that bloody ballon.

    I dont think he meant the security centre. I face the same problem. Cant seem to disable the firewall in xp sp2. Even after turning it off, i keep getting dialogs asking whether to allow net access to particular programs. :roll:

    Click [Start]->[Run] and type 'services.msc'. There, disable th service called 'Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)'.

    also since security centre in a service it can be set to manual so it starts only when required. better option for newbies rather than going for reg edit.

    many thanks batty and aumha
