Content Password

By donmorton ·
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 has a Supervisor password, other than contacting a Microsoft Support Professional for assistance how does one change or remove the password on a computer in which the password is not known?

Thanks,

Don

Password reveal is only for passwords that are behind ********. The area that I'm trying to find has no **** it must be typed in.

Thanks,

From the forums:

Run Regedit and go to

hkey_local_machine\software\Microsoft\windows\current version\polices\ratings

Back it up to the desktop, then delete the "Key"

Close the windows registry editor and go to find files or folders andlook for the file called ratings.pol and rename this to ratings.old. This will reset the content advisor.

Step-by-step:

1) Click on Start and choose Run.
2) Type in Regedit and select OK.
3) Now click on the little plus sign to the left of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
4) Continue to drill down, always clicking on the plus sign at the left of the namedkey, through Software, Microsoft, Windows, Current Version and Policies.
5) Now click on the Ratings folder.
6) In the right pane of the Regedit window, you'll see an icon called Key. Click on it and press Delete.
7) Next, choose Registry and then Exit to exit Regedit. You've just deleted your original Content Advisor password.
Restart the computer and run Internet Explorer again.
9) Choose View and then Internet Options
10) Click on the Content tab and click on Disable. When asked for a password, don't enter anything; just click on OK. This will disable Content Advisor because there's no longer a password.

Item 10 did not work, would not accept a blank password.
