I have also looked into hkey_localmachine/software/policies/microsoft/windows firewall/ and then domainprofile and standard profile. They each have 2 keys reg_sz and reg_dword. It was suggested in another post that they could be deleted. has anyone tried this or does anyone have any advice on this topic??
by the way, two other xp pro machines i hav elooked at don't have these directories and have no problem
