How to Remove Content Advisor Password in Internet Explorer

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

  • Click on Start and choose Run.
  • Type in RegEdit and select OK.
  • Now click on the little plus sign to the left of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    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. Now click on the Ratings folder. In the right pane of the RegEdit window, you'll see an icon called Key. Click on it and press Delete.
  • Exit the registry and you've just deleted your original Content Advisor password.
  • Restart the computer and run Internet Explorer again.
  • Click on Tools, Internet Options. 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.
