Guys, does anybody know how to disable a forgotten Content Advisor password? I've got an XP machine with it turned on and it wont allow ANY surfing. BTW I tried the trick at pchell.com at it doesnt work in XP.

Ah, windows ... nothing is really secure in it. :no:

Start up regedit :D

H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version > Policies

click on the Ratings folder.

In the right pane of the RegEdit window, you'll see an icon called "Key". -- Delete it.

Close up regedit ... your done, the password for the content adviser has just been deleted. You'll still have to go into Tools > Internet Options > Content > And click the disable button.

:D But instead of asking for your current password, its has no clue so what it is either anymore so it will ask you for a new one, once you put it in, content adviser will be disabled and your new password set.
