You can use ComSpec externally, rather then trying to automate it.

$answer = MsgBox(4, "Disable Windows Firewall", "Are you sure that you want to shut the Firewall off. This includes internet conection sharing")

If $answer = 7 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Disable Windows Firewall", "It was up to you. Have a Nice Day :)")
    Exit
EndIf

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c net stop SharedAccess', '', @SW_HIDE)

The service name is smaller also. Use SC Query at a command prompt to get service information.

:D

The MsgBox code is yours.

The last line that I added is to just stop the Windows Firewall.

@ComSpec is the macro that has the fullpath to cmd.exe, Using the /c switch enables cmd.exe to enter commandline mode and will exit upon completion. SharedAccess is the service name for the Windows Firewall.

SC.exe could be used instead of Net Stop in the command and you could execute SC.exe directly without ComSpec.

What else do you want to know?

Before anyone else offers help on this topic, you might want to look at the same poster's question in the IdeaLab forum:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=27129

As you can see from this thread and that one, he wants to do two things: (1) turn off the Windows firewall and (2) change the user's password by directly accessing the registry.

The only possible purpose in doing this combination of things seems to be malicious - to gain full access to a user's system by turning off the firewall and changing the password.

The script posted above includes a "Do you want to turn off the firewall?" question, but that clearly could be removed in the actual script.

Perhaps the original poster would care to clarify what the purpose of his script might be?

netsh firewall set opmode disable

Will disable the firewall to. Netsh is a nice tool to adjust firewall settings like opening ports etc and many other things.

For some reason, this string just gives me the creeps. Its like I've seen this user before, just under a different handle......Maybe I'm just being paronoid.... :D

I think you're right: he's been around before. He's got a very individual way of not being able to say what he means.

@ all the above

i am completly noob with any program languge.

i needed to make this script because my computer would freeze when i would try to disable it the normal way.

and i anit no hacker. don't want to be. and any one who makes a virus has too much time on thier hands. if your wondering about the other post.

i am a a+ certified tech.

so i figure why pay hundreds of dollars when i can make a program for free

No evidence, then no crime. Disabling a service and changing a password does not make an evil person. Most already know this information.

...i am completly noob with any program languge...

I assume that you only want to disable the firewall for a little while... then using the info posted above:

make a new text file on your desktop (or somewhere)

add this info to it:

netsh firewall set opmode disable
pause
netsh firewall set opmode enable
save and rename the file something.bat

When you run the bat file (double click on it), it will disable the firewall and pause - when you want it back on, just hit enter in the CMD window.

Well, if you want to disable so the firewall service remains disabled, then set it via the registry.

RegWrite('HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess', 'Start', 'Reg_Dword', '0x00000004')

or I remember that SC.exe can do it also.

:D

Sorry dude. Did not mean to offend. I hope the code issue your having works out. It looks like Plato's code should do the trick.

But the guy's explanation makes no sense.

Just think about it for a moment. He posts two requests in different forums. One is for a way to turn off the Windows firewall; the other is for a way to change a Windows password by directly manipulating the registry - in other words without asking the user to enter the password first.

There may not be a fire here, but there sure is plenty of smoke.

u said this

change a Windows password by directly manipulating the registry

i said that i could be possible to access it through the registry

but there is one thing that i have learned through training for A+

don't f*** with the registry if your not sure what will happen

what could happen if you mess with the registry you could imput the wrong key value and totaly lock your self out or you could get the wrong key it self

and personaly

if you want to say something to me say it to my face etaoinshrdlu
