Shutdown or find the admin password for k9 blue coat

Ok so k9 blue coat is installed on this computer and i can't access any pages like facebook or youtube. I've tried anonymizer sites without luck since k9 blocks proxy avoidance. It also blocks hack sites, blogs, social networking, peer-to-peer, and a few others. I need the password or a way to bypass/shut off k9 completely. If the solution involves downloading something from those sites i can get a friend to download it and send it to me. Please help!

    For the record i do have my own money and am able to buy (or build) a new computer. It's simply because my parents are douche bags and won't let me spend my money. I also never visited adult sites. They just think places like facebook and youtube are "unhealthy" for my grades (which i may point out are A's and B's and I'm in the honors curriculum and CJSF)

Fred is a ****** obviously he NEVER uses utube! he was like us when he was younger i bet, but youtube has security on it, so we dont need it, I know and agree that pornographic websites SHOULD be blocked, but youtube is not like that. you know what you should do, tell your parents you wont fcking eat until k9 is removed for good, if they put it back on, do something like run off for a day around your neighbor hood woth a PSP and some chocolate, that WILL make'em move!

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.

Make sure you are connected to the internet before uninstalling K9 so your license is properly released. If this is not possible, you can continue to uninstall, but you will need to request a new K9 license if you choose to reinstall K9 in the future. Also, please make sure you are logged into your Windows Administrator user profile. Attempting to uninstall K9 from any other user profile than "Administrator" will not work.
  1. Click [Start].
  2. Click [Control Panel] (Note: if you cannot see this option, it may be under[Settings]).
  3. Open [Programs and Features] (Note: This will be called [Add/Remove Programs] in Windows XP).
  4. Locate Blue Coat K9 Web Protection in the list of programs and click once to highlight it.
  5. Click [Change/Remove].
  6. Click [Yes] when you are asked whether you want to completely remove K9. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNINSTALL K9 WITHOUT A PASSWORD. By design, K9 will block all internet access should one attempt to uninstall K9 without using a password. Attempts to modify K9 at the 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 the email address on file.
  8. When prompted to reboot your computer, click [Yes].
After rebooting your computer, K9 will be completely uninstalled.

    How can uninstall K9 Web Protection without K9 admin password

    Myspace and twitter is being blocked by k9 web protection and i want to get on it but do i bypass the k9 web protection

    Well have you installed K9 or your parents? :D. If they did I m sorry to say that its better for your own good ha ha. If not you can configure it to allow myspace and twitter. But still I will not tell you how to bypass since I don't know whether you are a kid.
    If you have not already logged in, enter your administrator password at the prompt and click OK. From the Setup menu, click Web Categories to Block. By unticking the tick for social networking (if it is ticked) you will be allowed to access any social network. Save the configurations.
    Click URL key words Check whether those URLs have been blocked (full url and / or by words. You can clear the saved settings by allowing them.
    There is another way of unblocking the site.
    To override a blocked Web site: 1. On the Category Blocked page, choose an option under Allow This Site. The following figure shows an example. 2. From the Allow access to list, click one of the following options: • for 5 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next five minutes. • for 15 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next 15 minutes. • for 30 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next 30 minutes. • for 60 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next 60 minutes. • permanently to always allow access to this site. If you choose this option, one of the following happens: • If the Web site was blocked because of its category, the Web site is placed in the always allow list • If the Web site was blocked because it was in the always block list, the Web site is removed from the always block list. 3. Click Allow This Site. 4. You are required to enter your K9 Web Protection administrator password to confirm the action. This is how the "Block access by time of the day" works.
    K9 Web Protection enables you to restrict the time of day users can access Web sites. If there are specific times when you do or do not want your family accessing the Web, this feature assists you in enforcing that policy. To restrict Web browsing access times: 1. Start K9 Web Protection 2. From the top menu bar, click Setup. 3. If you have not already logged in, enter your administrator password at the prompt and click OK. 4. From the Setup menu, click Time Restrictions. You have the following options: Unrestricted NightGuard Custom.
    Just select the Unrestricted or modify Custom to re adjust the settings.
    Adding a web site exception (Advanced). This is how its done.
    You can create exceptions for any of the following reasons: ? Web sites that do not belong to any category ? Web sites you know your children access frequently, so you can make sure you enforce the appropriate action (allow or block) ? To allow access to specific Web sites that belong to a category that you otherwise want to block To set up Web site exceptions: 1. Start K9 Web Protection 2. From the top menu bar, click Setup. 3. If you have not already logged in, enter your administrator password at the prompt and click OK. 4. From the Setup menu, click Web Site Exceptions. Then exceptions can be added.
    To remove the exception just remove the setting or add it to Always Allow.
    To override a block and access blocked Web pages, you must enter the administrator password you configured when you installed K9 Web Protection.
    Special cases.
    If a Web page was blocked because it was on the always block list or because it is classified in a category you chose to block, you can ask Blue Coat to review the Web site’s rating as follows: ? You can request Blue Coat associate the Web site with more categories ? You can request Blue Coat reclassify the Web site, if you believe the categorization is incorrect.

    How can i enter the site if k9 web protection activated.

    If you have the administrator access for the web k9 protection then when it popped up you can change the settings by accessing the configuration. If you do not have the password then try this.

    Shutdown,bypass,or find the admin pass for blue coat k9

    UNinstall it: click on windows START (lower left corner-windows icon)
    go to control panel
    select add or remove programs
    (let the list build for a second or two)
    select the program you want to uninstall

    may need to restart.

    On a side note, AVG antivirus is top rated free a/v software, which I recommend; easier to manage.

    Hope this helps.
