Using Regedit command to disable firewall

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I normally use Control Panel to access the Windows Firewall system. Recently I have switched to using the regedit command to open the System Registry. Both function correctly but may I know which one is better? Being a domain admin myself, are there any advantages that I may encounter if I use regedit over the standard method of disabling the Windows firewall?

Hi Amanda,

To disable your windows firewall for domain and standard profiles, you can use the registry keys in the attached file. All you have to do is:

1. Go to ‘Start’ then ‘Run’.

2. Type ‘regedit’ then click ‘OK’.

3. Click ‘Edit’ then click ‘Find’. Or press ‘CTRL + F’.

4. Paste the applicable path (Please see attached file).

5. Click ‘Find next’

I hope this tip will help you.

Regards,

Martine Paul

Hello,

If you are a system admin then using regedit commands makes you look like a professional. Besides these there are many other advantages such as:-

1. You can disable a normal user from using the firewall. But you can completely disable it from any kind of testing or hacking by using registry command.

2. If you use registry commands, it saves a lot of time.

3. To uninstall a third-party application which has damaged your firewall.
