scriptable way to disable HIPS firewall

Is there a way to disable the McAfee Host Intrusion Protection 7.0 firewall that I can add into a .bat file? Sounds silly but so the users dont have to right click and then click on Disable Firewall.

Re: scriptable way to disable HIPS firewall

I use the ClientControl utility available from McAfee download site. Be aware that you need to expose the HIPS password in the batch file, so there is a security concern included, especially when using plain text files.
