Is it possible to disable Windows Security center from winnt.sif?

Recommended Posts

I found registry tweaks for it and it worked, but I'm wondering if the process can be done through the winnt.sif file?

Also if I use the registry tweaks to disable the window security center, then I wouldn't have to enable the tweak to disable the firewall and all because the disabling of the security center will disable everything that is associated with it?

No, I don't think so. I do it by editing the registry during cmdlines.txt to disable the service. Windows Security Center was introduced with Service Pack 2 in XP. It came a little late in the game to be included in the winnt.sif. But I could be wrong, to tell the truth I havent really looked because the registry method works so well.

you can do it by creating a Addon which can be integrated into source automatically, via nlite.

Try to search a tool in google named, "Reg2Inf" created by n7epsilon.

It will do your needs.

If you cant do,

post the Register entries here, I or someone will make a addon for you....

How do you do it via the registry?

Try:

[WindowsFirewall]
Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall

[WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall]
Mode = 0

in Winnt.sif

Actually, no - things stay enabled, but you have to use their associated icons or control panel entry points to configure them - security center is just the one-stop shop.

I'll post the reg hacks here for disabling each component (I don't recommend it, but if you have a reason to do so, here's the poison):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Disable Information Bar Prompt in Internet Explorer
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InformationBar]
"FirstTime"=dword:00000000

;Disable Antivirus Monitoring
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
"AntiVirusOverride"=dword:00000001

;Disable Windows Firewall Monitoring
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
"FirewallOverride"=dword:00000001

;Disable Anti-virus Notifications
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
"AntiVirusDisableNotify"=dword:00000001

;Disable Firewall Notifications
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
"FirewallDisableNotify"=dword:00000001

;Disable Windows Firewall
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\StandardProfile]
"EnableFirewall"=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\DomainProfile]
"EnableFirewall"=dword:00000000

;Disable Automatic Updates Notifications
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center]
"UpdatesDisableNotify"=dword:00000001

;Disable Automatic Updates
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000001

;Disable Security Center Service
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc]
"Start"=dword:00000004
