If you do not know or have forgotten the Supervisor password, please contact a Microsoft Support Professional for assistance. For information about how to contact a Microsoft Support Professional, view the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/contact/default.asp

NOTE: In special cases, charges that are normally incurred for support calls may be canceled, if a Microsoft Support Professional determines that only a password reset will resolve your problem. Normal support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for the specific password reset in question.
NOTE: Internet Explorer 6 includes a new password hint feature to assist you in remembering your Content Advisor password. When you first enable Content Advisor (if not enabled previously) or change the supervisor password (if enabled previously) in Internet Explorer 6, you will be asked to enter a hint for your new password. Enter a hint that helps you remember your password but does not allow others to guess your password. For example, "My password is the PIN for my ATM card." When Content Advisor asks for the password (for example, to view an unrated Web page), the hint will also be displayed.

Internet Explorer - Content Adviser - Reset



The following steps will remove any password set in the Content Adivisor
and allow you to reset the program to its original state.

1) Click on Start and choose Run.

2) Type in RegEdit and select OK.

3) Now click on the little plus sign to the left of H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

4) Continue to drill down, always clicking on the plus sign at the left of
the named key, through Software, Microsoft, Windows, Current Version and
Policies.

5) Now click on the Ratings folder.

6) In the right pane of the RegEdit window, you'll see an icon called Key.
Click on it and press Delete.

7) Next, choose Registry and then Exit to exit RegEdit. You've just deleted
your original Content Advisor password.

8) Restart the computer and run Internet Explorer again.

9) Choose View and then Internet Options (or Options for version 3.x)

10) Click on 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 because there's no longer a password.
