My Content Advisor Password is Lost. What do I do?
Posted on 2006-03-22
I found this on Experts Exchange. I got down to step 6 where it says.....In the right pane of the RegEdit window, you'll see an icon called Key. The only icon I see is one called Default. Is this the icon I delete? This is on a computer running IE6 with Windows XP sp-1.
The following steps will remove any password set in the Content Adivisor and allow you to reset the program to its original state. Remember to backup your registry.
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 Tools and then Internet Options
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
