    One of my customers Content Advisor Password has bee set and she has no idea how it was set or what the password is. She recieves a hint "blue eyes shine again". How do you remove the password.

    Passwords are meant to be secure: if there were a button that reset it there would be no point in having one in the first place. You'd be best to just try and work out the password, or reinstall IE (although due to the tight integration with the OS, I fear you'll need to reinstall Windows.)

    You can delete Content Advisor password. It is really easy.

    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.


    Let me know of this works....
