i think within control panel you can disable the firewall and the virusscanner.
Check it, ik think there will be a new icon (something with a shield??)

Disabling the Windows Firewall can be done via winnt.sif, add the following entries anywhere in winnt.sif:

Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall

Mode = 0

If you want to leave the Windows Firewall enabled but also want to preset the settings, check ref.chm under Unattended.txt > [WindowsFirewall] for more information as it is too large to cover here.
Hope this helps.
