Remove Content Advisor

Content Advisor is a default add-on for Internet Explorer. It allows you to set certain blockers to prevent the access of questionable sites. You can even create a specific list of websites that you will not grant access to. Upon enabling this, children and other users may not access specific sites that are set by you, or your administrator. If someone attempts to access any of these websites, then a message will be prompted, asking you for the password in order to proceed. There are certain instances wherein the Content Advisor blocks more sites than it is supposed to. This is probably because the filter is set too high. This will prevent you from accessing even the legitimate sites.

Also, in some instances, administrators lose the password for the Content Advisor. You should realize that once you lose your password, it is irrecoverable.
During these instances, you might need to remove or disable the Content Advisor. The easiest way to do it is through the Windows Registry.

How to Remove Content Advisor
1. Click on Start Button then choose Run. You can also start Run by pressing Win Key+R (WinKey is the key with the Windows logo shown on it and it is usually found between the Ctrl and Alt keys)
2. Type regedit. This will lead you to the Registry Editor. Click OK.
3. Click on the plus sign of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
4. 4. Continue to open the registries, by clicking on the plus sign at the left of the named key, through Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Current Version -> Policies.
5. Click on the Ratings folder.
6. On the right side of the Registry Editor windows, you would see an item named as "Key", right-click it and Delete. This deletes your original Content Advisor settings and password.
7. Restart the computer and run Internet Explorer again. Choose View and then Internet Options. Click on Tools, Internet Options, for IE 5 or greater.

Click on the Content tab and click on Disable. When IE asks for the password, leave it as blank, and click on OK. This disables your Content Advisor because it no longer has a password.

Do not do anything else with the registry, while following these steps, because it may damage your Operating System.

Windows registry is a very important process on your computer. It defines how your computer functions. When disabling the Content Advisor, you need to be sure to follow the process specifically. If you are unsure, then it is best to get the guidance of someone familiar with Windows registry. Any mistakes in your registry could cause you even worse problems than just a content advisor error. It could cause your computer to slow down, freeze, or even crash.
