Run regedit , go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsCurrentVersion\Policies\Ratings

Select the icon called "Key" in the right-hand pane and press "delete" on your keyboard , close registry editor and reboot .

Next , open IE and select TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>CONTENT , click the disable button , Click on OK without entering anything when prompted for a password , Click on OK when warned that Content Advisor has been disabled , you should now be un-restricted .

My friend says many thanks to cycoze, it has saved him (me) re-installing IE5. Much thanks again, Ragnar.
