I am running ie 5.0 beta. Have been running for a month no problem, until last night. My content advisor somehow got turned to enable, no problem because my password does work. The problem is it refuses to let me disable it. Every time I click disable, I do not get a box asking me for my password it just stays there. This is a real pain in the neck because I need to enter the password every time I go to a new site or new page.

you will need to use regedit and go to the following location.


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

      Delete the entry in the right window called "Key".

      When you close IE and open it back, you can set a new password.


      Let me know if this helps,
