If you intend to use a third-party firewall product on your computer or a domain you should disable the Windows Firewall. To do this remotely or as part of a batch file, the simplest way is directly from the registry. Disabling from the registry might also be useful in circumstances where you cannot manually disable the firewall. Disabling through the registry would ensure that the firewall component would not load the next time Windows loads.
