You don't mention your OS..?? 95/98? If it's 95.. uninstall and reinstall IE. MS says, they won't help you crack the password. See kb article :: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q155/6/09.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0

I believe there is a registry fix, but we always refer to ms for this one.. 425-635-7123. your dime.

Go into folder options and make sure 'show all files' is selected.

Click on start\find\files or folders.
Do a search for *.pol.

Delete all .pol files.

Close the find window.
Click on start\run and type 'regedit' in the open box.
In registry editor click on the plus sign for the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\current version\policies.
Delete the RATINGS key (folder).
Close registry editor.
This will do the trick.

Good Luck!

the content advisor just pops up and says that it won't allow me to view the page because it doesn't have a rating.
