Hey, Im on XP and windows firewall is running and I want it disabled, i went to Run>services.msc and was told to find the windows firewall in the menu and then disable it, well the problem is that Windows Firewall is not even in the menu where it should show it. Is there any other way to disable this or remove it forever?
Thanks for your help
