I've been unable to find a method that will prevent the installation/activation of windows firewall in my UA install. I've tried the
"[WindowsFirewall]
Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall
[WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall]
Mode = 0"

approach in my winnt.sif file and it doesn't work. The problem is that when zonealarm installs the firewall blocks a part of it requiring intervention. My goal is to wind up with zonealarm installed and windows firewall either not installed or deactivated without having to address the popup from windows firewall. Would appreciate any assistance. Thanks

That works for me...

You can try disabling the windows firewall service in your cmdlines.txt file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SharedAccess]
"Start"=dword:00000004

I would also disable the windowsfirewall service, however i would use the key out of CurrentControlSet as the those with 001 & 002 are used for repair/recovery if a login doesn't happen.

Both that in the winnt.sif & regkey applied at cmdlines.txt do work very well.

with regards the winnt.sif addition, you have that in you original post, i normally add towards the end of the file.
[WindowsFirewall]
Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall
[WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall]
Mode = 0
and the reg key is
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Disable Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess]
"Start"=dword:00000004

This i add to my regtweaks.reg file and is called from cmdlines.txt
