Try this links how to remove the advisor password

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/conadvpass.html

or

Content Advisor is a feature in Internet Explorer that allows supervisors to restrict the web sites that the users can browse. The supervisor can set a password in order to prevent from other users from changing the Content Advisor properties. If the supervisor forgets the password, he cannot change the Content Advisor properties in the regular way. The simplest way to solve this problem is to delete the password in the Registry. The password is stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ratings. The "Key" value represents the encrypted password.
Advanced users can easily delete the password from the registry and thus they don't need this utility. User who doesn't want to deal with the registry, can use my utility for deleting the Content Advisor Password.

I Need helpseeting an adminstrator account up on a used computer


Open control panel and create a new user account with administrator privileges. Log off the previous user and logon to the one you just created. Then delete the original user and this should set everything as default for you the new user.

If the password prompt is in a browser ie, Internet explorer or Firefox you will need to remove the addon (sounds like parental controls).

The only way of changing the registered owner would be to complete a fresh install of windows.

I bought a easylink advisor and I want to Know if I have to recorder this thing to the ordinator for running my lap-top after


Hi pingouine89, it does not hurt to write down your settings especially if you setup security settings. You check your settings any time by doing this. Open internet explorer. In the address window type 192.168.1.1 than press enter. A pop-up windows will open. In the password window type in admin & press enter. This will bring up your settings, but it will not show you your security settings password if you set one up. (as suggested write it down & store it on a floppy disk for safe keeping.

If I can be of more service, just ask.
