You can go to control panel--> administrative tools-->services and find your firewall in the list. go the rt-clk shortcut to properties and click disable in the dropdown menu or click stop service link just below that. If that all fails to help, then run your "add/remove windows extras" in the add/remove programs app. When you are choosing what to add, don't add anything ,just UNCHECK the firewall checkbox and let it run. Reboot, and you should see that the firewall function is disabled in the properties for your connections. Don't worry, zonealarm or other firewalls are not effected...just the windows stock firewall.
Back up everything using "Restore" before you do, so iff you goof, you can fix it easily.
Hope this helps,
