Forgotten password in Internet Options RRS feed

  • Question

  • As I have not gone into Internet Options for quite a long time I have forgotten my password eventhough I had originally input a hint.

     

    I now wish to change Content within Internet Options but am unbale to do so without me inputting my password.

     

    I would be grateful in being advised how to resolve this problem.

    How do we know you're not trying to get around your parents'/employer's restrictions? Wink

  • Point taken but I am the administrator of the computer. Parents are out of the question as I am well over 21 and also emlpoyer out of the question as it's my home PC.

    Yes, but how do WE know that? Wink

    OK, OK, I won't torture you...

    1) START - RUN - regedit
    2) Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Ratings
    3) Delete the icon named Key.
    4) Exit regedit
    5) Reboot
    6)
    Open the Internet Options again, 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.

    Good luck...

  • Thanks for taking the time to help me out SME but fortunately the memory cells (within my head) kicked in and I was able to recall my password so I was saved the trouble of trying out your suggestion.

     

    Cheers......until next time.
