Hello all,

firewall is the applet "firewall.cpl", moving it away might do the job (currently sitting at a Win2k, so I can't check)

Another approach might be gpedit.msc, check out the tons of options there as well.

This is forum about AutoIt, not about system tweaks. :)

Remove Firewall applets:

RegWrite("HKCU\Control Panel\don't load", "firewall.cpl", "REG_SZ", "Yes")

For printers:

$printer = "Принтеры и факсы";My OS is russian localization
RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\DisallowCpl", "1", "REG_SZ", $printer)
:)

Thanks the last two answers!

the method you point just hide the icon, and I know this method, too.

But i want to know how to delete not to hide or to be disable

As sadness, I have moved the WMI out of my system, the Gpedit seems to be unable to work
