Hi,

I am missing the Windowsfirewall folder in the registry. Thus I cannot shutdown the windows firewall.

This is the location of where the files are supposed to be.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall
\DomainProfile \EnableFirewall=0 (DWORD data type)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall
\StandardProfile \EnableFirewall=0 (DWORD data type)

What is the best method for getting them back? Can I recreate them on my own if I know the proper syntax?

thanks,

Casper

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD.

System File Check will show an on screen blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes
