Depends on what OS you're running... you will probably have to reinstall.

How to remove k9 protection


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 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

Login windows 7 embedded administrator


If you forgot the password of the system, the official answer is NO, there is no way to get the password back. However, if you have another user account who has Administrator rights, such as Domain Admin account if the computer joins domain, you may try to use this user account to login to the computer and then reset the local administrator password. If no, you have to reinstall the system.
I don't think you wanted to here this but that is why the admin account is protected. So no one can get into it...

System password for samsung rv520


Uh Oh!!! Which Operating System??

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Forgot the password


Hold F8 on boot up, and boot into Safe Mode. There will be an Administrator account, which you can use to reset your account password.
If somehow the Administrator account is disabled, you can use alternative methods like: this, this and this.

Myspace and twitter is being blocked by k9 web protection and i want to get on it but cant.how 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.
Enjoy!

the easiest way to do this is to use a boot cd/floppy that will allow you to change the administrator password. Here are a few resources:

here is the more "official" way by using the recovery console and making a password recovery disk:
