Should You Remove the Content Advisor Password?

How often are you using the Internet? Do you find that a number of the websites are blocked because of your content advisor? The content advisor is a great way to remove vulgarity from your computer and you don’t even need to install or purchase a program to do it. However it can get tedious to type in a password every time you want to go chat with your pals in a discussion group.

The content advisor is one of the best ways to stay safe online and to keep other people in your home from going to trashy websites that just don’t belong in your home. If you are tired of inputting the password each time, you can always remove the password or shut off the content advisor so you don’t have to deal with it anymore.

To remove just the password from your Content Advisor, head to your Start menu and click on RUN. Now you need to type in “regedit” and click OK. This will pull up a different menu where you need to look for this phrase HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Once you find this, click on it and then continue to scan through your registry until you find the ratings folder. Now you want to look for the Registry window and click on Key and then delete it.

In order for the changes to take effect you need to exit your registry edit restart your computer. This will allow you to go to sites without actually needing to type in the password. However, what are you going to do if you are tired of the Content advisor altogether? You can disable it so it will stop blocking you from some of your favorite websites.

To disable your Content Advisor you need to open up a new internet explorer session. Go to your Tools menu and click on “Internet Options”. Once you are in your options folder you need to look for the tab that says “Content”. Click on this tab and it will pull up your content advisor. Click on “disable” and you will have a new box that asks you to confirm the disable. You don’t need to input a password since you just went to all the work of deleting the password. Once you have disabled it, click on OK and you are good to go.

Now is it really a good idea to disable your Content Advisor? It may seem like a good idea to you but have you stopped to think about all the other people in your home that use the internet? Are they going to be able to browse the internet safely and securely? Perhaps you have children at home that will suddenly get exposed to pornographic sites when they accidentally typed a wrong word into the search engine.

What about a person in your home that has a pornography addiction? Do you really think it is worth it for their sake to take the Content Advisor off? The content advisor can completely destroy the success they have been able to find with it on. If you are considering taking it off, talk to a couple of the people living with you to find out what they think about the content advisor. You may find that a lot of them may want to keep it on because it does help them avoid some of the temptations that come along with the internet.
