  • Need computer help!!!!

    A couple of my empoyees went into tools then internet options then content and enabled a damn password. Problem is the person that set up the computers is no longer an empoyee and we have no idea what the password could be. I know there is a way to find the password somewhere on the computer or a way to reset it. Do any of you know how to do this?

    which os? there are programs out there that can crack it, but they take a loooong time (especially in win2k and xp pro). usually a reinstall is easier (probably not what you wanted to hear)

              There is a registery key that holds this password. Try to do a serach on that on google. We had this happen at work and I was able to find it and change it. Not sure about XP as this was a win2k machine?

              EDIT: try this:
              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.

              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). For IE 5 or greater, Click on Tools, 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.

                  IE....what kinda moron would set a password for a browser program? And anyone with admin rights has over-ride power.
                  As for op system...ERD commander takes about 2 min. to let you log into any NT4/2000 machine. Never tried the XP version.

                    Parents of 15yo porn surfers? The password is for the security settings only I thought.
