    Hi! don't know how to contact my expert. I just want to thank him for solving the problem for me. Anyway, my email address is myobee@yahoo.com. Please send me the program to remove the password. It's a good idea to have one rather than going back and forth using Explorer and Firefox.

I would suggest downloading Mozilla Firefox on another computer, putting it on a flash drive or burn a cd, then install on your laptop.

After running mozilla it will ask to make it default browser, click yes, be careful how you respond when it asks you to import from internet explorer. if you import everything it may import security settings.

the only other thing to do is if you give me your e-mail address I can send you a program to remove the password

Site is blocked


You\'ll find many products for blocking websites.

Some work for the general user who wants to block spammers
while others are for parents who want to block harmful content from their
children.

Both types of products vary in price and sometimes lead to
more headaches by blocking the content you do want to see.

Before you take that step, try these ideas for blocking
websites easily and for free.



Allow Internet Explorer to block websites by going to "Internet
Options" under "Tools."


Select the "Content" button and go to
"Content Advisor."

Enable Content Advisor by clicking the button and adding a
supervisor\'s password.


If you don\'t use a password, anyone can go into Internet
Explorer and unblock websites.

Content Advisor allows you to use settings in four areas:
ratings, approved sites, general and advanced.


Focus on "ratings" and "approved sites"
to block websites.








Adjust the slider under ratings for language, nudity,
and violence.


You have five choices that range from "None" to
"Explicit."

The ratings option only affects some pages with many
websites slipping under the radar.


Go to the next step to block specific websites from Content
Advisor.




Click on the "Approved Sites" tab to add a
website.


Click "Never" to block the website.

Select "OK."




Edit host files when using the Content Advisor isn\'t
enough.


Your host files stores information that includes files to
block. Click "Start" and "Run."

Type in the following to get to the host commands from
Windows XP: C:WindowsSystem32driversetchosts.




Scroll to the bottom of the notepad window where you
should find the line "127.0.0.1."


Push your enter key and type in the block command of
127.0.0.1 followed by the website.

For example, to block MySpace, you would type 127.0.0.1
myspace.com.




Add additional websites to block by adding one number to
the last number in the internal ip before the website address.

For example, the next one would be 127.0.02.

When you are finished, save the file and exit.

How do I turn on my MSI laptop, model #MS-16GN? It's my 13 year old daughter's and I need to monitor.


If you mean set up parental controls, you need to have an account on the laptop under your name with your own password (the next bit s taken directly from Microsoft)

Open Parental Controls by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, and then, under User Accounts, clicking Set up Parental Controls.? 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Click the standard user account for which you want to set Parental Controls. (this will be your daughters account)

Under Parental Controls, click On.

Once you've turned on Parental Controls for your child's standard user account, you can adjust the individual settings that you want to control. You can control the following areas:
  1. Web restrictions. You can restrict the websites that children can visit, make sure children only visit age-appropriate websites, indicate whether you want to allow file downloads, and set up which content you want the content filters to block and allow. You can also block or allow specific websites. For more information, see Limit the content that children can view on the web.

    Time limits. You can set time limits to control when children are allowed to log on to the computer. Time limits prevent children from logging on during the specified hours and, if they are already logged on, they will be automatically logged off. You can set different logon hours for every day of the week. For more information, see Control when children can use the computer.


  2. Games. You can control access to games, choose an age rating level, choose the types of content you want to block, and decide whether you want to allow or block unrated or specific games. For more information, see Specify which games children can play.


  3. Allow or block specific programs. You can prevent children from running programs that you don't want them to run. For more information, see Prevent children from using specific programs.

With XP, all you can do is set up content adviser, which is a bit limited
To do this: Control panel / Internet options / Content / Content Advisor / Then in the box that appears, set the level of safety
