Possibly

You first of all need to establish weather or not you have local admin rights to that machine in order to change any of the settings. Failing that uninstall Internet explorer and reinstall with the latest version it can't do any harm.

Is it content advisor?

by rickydoo In reply to internet explorer passwor ...

If you forgot your content advisor password, this is all I could find from MS. Go here:

If you can't disable it even with the correct password, here's what I had to do:
(From Microsoft)
SYMPTOMS
If you follow the instructions in the error message, you may not be able to disable Content Advisor, or the changes may appear to work but then do not work when you restart the computer.
CAUSE
This behavior can occur if the Ratings.pol file is damaged or corrupted, or if there is another Ratings.pol file located in the C:\Windows folder.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, create a new Ratings.pol file:
Quit Internet Explorer.
Check your Windows\System folder to see if a Ratings.pol file exists.
NOTE: You must be able to view hidden files to view the Ratings.pol file.
Note that there may not be a Ratings.pol file in the Windows\System folder. If there is no Ratings.pol file, skip to step 3. If there is a Ratings.pol file, rename it to Ratings.old.
Start Internet Explorer, click Cancel to close the error message, and then click Internet Options on the Tools menu.
Click the Content tab, and then click Settings in the Content Advisor area.
Type the Supervisor password, and then click OK.
NOTE: If you do not know or have forgotten the Supervisor password, please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for assistance. For information about how to contact Microsoft Product Support Services, please visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/contact/default.asp
Choose the ratings options that meet your needs, and then click OK.
When you restart Internet Explorer, the changes take effect.
