Specs: Windows Vista
Question:
I set a password for Content Advisor, and now I can't remember it, so I can't browse the Internet. How can I get rid of this?
Answer:
To do this, click start, run, type in REGEDIT, click ok, this opens registry editor. Click + in front of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, + in front of SOFTWARE, + in front of Microsoft, + in front of Windows, + in front of Current Version, + in front of Policies, Click Ratings, look to right, Click line below Default, press delete, enter. Leave default line only in right pane. Close registry editor. Next click start, find, files and folders, type "ratings.pol" in top line, C: in bottom, find now. When this file is found, delete it. This will remove password set, and leave content advisor fully operable. Next time, chose a password you can remember.

My Question:
I did most of the steps but got a bit confused at click line below default, press delete, enter. I think i may have deleted something else, I deleted a folder that was underneath default. After this I tried to go to the next step, Close registry editor. Next click start, find, files and folders, type "ratings.pol" in top line, C: in botom line, find now. I have no idea how to do this bit I clicked on start and cannot find "find" or "files and folders" typed it in the search bar and still couldn't find it.

I am useing Windows Vistaso maybe this is the reason I cannot find it but please help me, I need to reset my password for content advisor. I really need help please?

If you set the P/W recently (a couple of days ago), you may restore your PC to a time before you set the password. This will correct your problems.
