My son set up a password in content advisor and now can’t remember the password. Is there any way to by pass it.

To do this, click start, run, type in REGEDIT, click ok, this opens registry editor. Click + in front of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, + in front of SOFTWARE, + in front of Microsoft, + in front of Windows, + in front of Current Version, + in front of Policies, Click Ratings, look to right, Click line below Default, press delete, enter. Leave default line only in right pane. Close registry editor. Next click start, find, files and folders, type "ratings.pol" in top line, C: in bottom, find now. When this file is found, delete it. This will remove password set, and leave content advisor fully operable.

Should have added , as always before editing the registry make sure you back it up first !
