Internet Content Advisor

By McIntyreM ·
I have recently tested the Content Advisor in Internet Explorer. I don't like it at all and want to permanently deactivate it. I have click on settings and inserted the appropriate password. Then I click on the Disable button and inserted the password again. However, it only disables it for the time period that I am using IE. How do I permanently disable it?

Click on Start, Run and type "regedit" and click OK. This brings you to the Registry Editor, which looks a bit like Windows Explorer.

First, make a backup by clicking on Registry, Export. Name it backup and click ok.

Next, browse to this folder in Regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ratings

Select the icon called Key in the right-hand pane and press delete. Close Regedit.

You can now start Internet Explorer and goto View, Internet Options.... Select 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, since there's no longer a password.
