WARNING: K9 says if you fool with the installation, it will disable internet access. There is no warranty on this method, but you can try it. Summary: Delete the license file, download a new copy, install it, request a license code from K9, set your own password, then uninstall it.

Hi im anthony and i had bought a laptop from a guy and it has k9 web protection on it and im tryn to get it took off can u pleasde help me


there are two methods you can try.
Method 1
If you have the administrator account password for the local computer and the best way to uninstall K9 web filter from the local computer is to re-install it! Re-install k9 web protection will simply get you a new license code and a new password you can enter without the need of old password.
1.Open K9 web protection website 2.Click "get K9 NOW" tab on the top-left 3.Fill out the information and your email. 4.Download the K9 Web protection software from the link included in the email and keep a copy of the license. 5.Grab a version of the K9 web protection installed on your computer, a Google search should do the job. 6.Open "Task Manager" by press (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and end the process K9filter found in the "Process" tab. 7.Now, you can safely delete the K9 web protection program files. Open computer explorer and go to the folder where K9 is originally installed. It can be found mostly at C:\Program Files/Blue Coat k9 Web Protection. 8.Remove the contents of the folder but not the folder. 9.Run the K9 web protection setup/installer file which has the same version as the one you just delete 10.Provide the license and create your new password 11.Point the installation folder to the same folder you just empty the contents earlier on 12.Now you can have a re-installed K9 web protection with a password you know. How do you uninstall K9 web protection now? Use the new password you just created If something goes wrong, install the K9 web protection program downloaded from Step 4.
Method 2
Reboot Windows into safe mode: restart your computer and hold "F8? key until you see the menu to choose "Safe Mode" Login to windows and go to "Program Files" directory and delete the K9 folder manually (delete only the contents but leave the folder) Click "Start"->"Run" and type "msconfig" Check the tab "Services" and tab "Startup" Un-check anything that is related to k9 If somehow this method is messed up, try to download K9 again to at least restore your previous installation. If this still does not work, try to install Revo Uninstaller.

My freakin brother installed the k9 web protection and i cant get past it and i dont know how to bet my parents email/password!!!


You can remove k9 by:-
  • Click Start
  • Click Control Panel. If you can't see this option, it may be under "Settings"
  • Click Add or Remove Programs
  • Find Blue Coat K9 Web Protection in the list of programs and click it once.
  • Click the Change/Remove button.
  • Click Yes when you are asked whether you want to completely remove K9. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNINSTALL WITHOUT A PASSWORD. By design, K9 will block all Internet access should one attempt to uninstall without using a password. Attempts to modify K9 at a registry level will have the same effect.
  • Enter your K9 administration password and click Uninstall. If you forgot your password, click the "Forgot Password..." link to have a temporary password emailed to you.
  • When asked whether to reboot your computer, click Yes

My uncle installed k9 web protection in my laptop, how can i get rid of it since i dont know the password?


Solution

Please follow the instructions below to uninstall K9 Web Protection. Make sure you are connected to the internet before uninstalling K9 so your license can be released. If this is not possible, you can continue to uninstall, but you will need to request a new K9 license if you want to reinstall K9 in the future.

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Control Panel. If you can't see this option, it may be under "Settings"
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs
  4. Find Blue Coat K9 Web Protection in the list of programs and click it once.
  5. Click the Change/Remove button.
  6. Click Yes when you are asked whether you want to completely remove K9. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNINSTALL WITHOUT A PASSWORD. By design, K9 will block all Internet access should one attempt to uninstall without using a password. Attempts to modify K9 at a registry level will have the same effect.
  7. Enter your K9 administration password and click Uninstall. If you forgot your password, click the "Forgot Password..." link to have a temporary password emailed to you.
  8. When asked whether to reboot your computer, click Yes

After rebooting, K9 will be completely uninstalled.



You can find many solutions over the net but dont try it else the internet will be blocked.. just ask for a new password and they will mail you... You need to click on forgot password.

Shutdown or find the admin password for k9 blue coat


You will have to remove k9 or wipe and reload the OS. The issue is caused by the k9 software.

If you bought the machine with k9 preloaded, then you will need to wipe and reload your OS and drivers, or call k9 for removal.

If it was installed for you by an administrator, (your computer guru), you had best speak with him/her before taking any action. Administrators often have records of these things, and they can assist you.

If you are a parent and you installed this to protect your children, but you forgot the password, then you may need to call k9 and have someone assist you. there is likely a "master" password or a reset code they can give to allow you to reset and reapply your settings.

If you are a child trying to get into adult websites, and your parents installed k9 to stop you, then I suggest you grow up, get a job, buy your own computer, and do as you will with it. After you drop $700 to $900 of your own money into it, then you may visit anyplace you desire, and infest it with junk. Once it is no longer useful, you may begin to appreciate why someone tried to install security on it. Once your investment becomes a blinking bleeping heap of slow uselessness, you might understand why your parents installed k9.

Good luck.
