Content Advisor settings message on Internet Explorer & Win 98

My question involves Microsoft IE 5.5 and Windows 98.  I couldn't find a more appropriate category, so I'm putting it under Windows 98.  I am computer software instuctor. Some time ago, I was prepping for teaching IE and did a lesson on setting a password and content advisor.  I put a password on and then removed it.

Many months later, suddenly IE enabled the password.  Everytime I reboot and then go online, I get the message "Please check your Content Advisor settings for missing information.  Check the Tools menu and then click Internet Options.  On the Content tab, check the Content Advisor settings."

I have to on to Tools, Internet Options, put in my password which it assigned "Password" and set the settings to allow for language, etc.  I click OK and then have to put my password in again to disable the password feature.  BUT the settings don't hold.  When I reboot, I have to do the whole procedure again.

I tried uninstalling IE and then reinstalling.  That didn't work.  I even tried going into the Windows Registry, doing a search for anything with IE in it and deleting it.  That didn't work.

I don't know what else to do.  Can anyone help?  

Thanks.

Basically, you need to delete or rename a file called ratings.pol, but there's complete info in the link above.

Why are Office 365 signatures so complicated?

Trying to setup transport rules for Office 365 email signatures and can’t quite figure it out? Having to test the signature over and over? Make things simple by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

Are your end users making ugly email signatures?

Have you left it up to your end users to create their own email signatures? Are they forgetting to add the company logo or using garish font colors? Take control and ensure all users have the same email signature.
