Hello,

Try this 1

Check if you are able to disable the "Content Advisor".

Click on Start --> Run --> Type regedt32 and press Enter.

"Registry Editor" will be opened. First backup your registry by going to

"File --> Export:" --> Save the file with any name in your desired location.

Now on the left hand side, navigate to the below location

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SOFTWARE --> Microsoft --> Windows -->

CurrentVersion --> policies. Now under "Policies", click on "Ratings" folder.

Now on the right hand side, you can find a file named "Key". Delete it and close

the "Registry Editor".

Click on Start --> Run --> Type inetcpl.cpl and press Enter.

"Internet Properties" window will be opened. Now click on the "Content" tab

--> Under "Content Advisor", click on "Disable" button.

When it prompts for the password, just click on OK. No need to enter any

password.

Good Luck
