    Yes,

    In the run box on the start menue type services.msc. Find Widows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing, click on it and change the start up type to disabled. You can stop the service then, or reboot.

    That script looks like overkill to me, and I believe it was discussed in the context of operating a server. I have run a bunch of different firewalls with no apparent conflicts just having the Windoze firewall service turned off.
