Unlocking Content Advisor

A window appears EVERY time I change web pages or websites. There are no children in this house. I use the computer to keep in touch with them but I'm tired of unlocking that box. My internet provider is Wild Blue and they have merged with Google and we are experiencing a variety of problem but no one seems to know about this one. PS Please reply in English

I can't open the website


cant open certain web pages
When browsing the web, there are some instances where you encounter pages that cannot be loaded.
There are several reasons why, ranging from an error on the website itself to the settings on your own computer.
Page Cannot be Found A "Page cannot be found error" may occur when certain Web pages are no longer online.
This can be due to the deletion of the page, or if the page was relocated to a different section without having its links updated.
Firewall Issues
There are some pages that cannot be displayed on your computer simply because they are being blocked by the firewall software installed on your computer.
To remedy the issue, change your firewall settings to allow access to these pages.
Virus or Malware
If you have an anti-virus installed, this will prevent you from accessing pages that may contain possible threats to your computer.
Websites that contain viruses or malware, or so-called "Attack sites" will be blocked from being loaded on your computer.
Connection Timed Out
When you get this error message, it means your internet connection has timed out, which will cause your page not to load.
You can contact your internet service provider to resolve this issue.
Clean Up Cookies on a Computer
Clearing your computer's cookies in Microsoft Internet Explorer is easy.
Clearing your permanently filed cookies will make your computer run a little bit faster, and eliminate the link between you and the websites you frequent.
Cookies are small files that websites store on your computer to remember your account information, login, password and who you are.
If you want to eliminate another party tracking your preferences, read on to learn how to clean up cookies on a computer.

Turn on your computer and allow it to boot up.
Open a Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser.
It doesn't matter what web page first loads.
Locate the "Tools" tab or icon on the top right hand corner of your screen.
Click on the tab or icon, so a drop-down menu appears.
Browse the list and find "Internet Options."
Use your mouse to left click on "Internet Options."

Notice a new box open on your screen.
The bar across the top of this new box should say "Internet Options."
Below this bar will be several tabs.
Use your mouse to left click on the "General" tab.
Scan the box and locate the section titled "Browsing History."
Read the description under browsing history to be sure it includes the option to delete temporary files, browsing history, cookies, saved passwords and web form information.
Under the description, you will see two boxes, "Delete" and "Settings."
Click on the "Delete" button.
A new bow will appear on your screen.
The bar across the top of the box will be labeled "Delete Browsing History."
Notice the options in this box include the ability to delete temporary Internet files, cookies, history, form data and passwords.
Select the button that says "Delete Cookies" if you wish to only delete the cookies data files.
If you would like to get rid of the history list of websites you have visited, all your logins, passwords and form data, select the "Delete All" button at the bottom of the box.
Selecting either "Delete Cookies" or "Delete All" will make another box appear on your screen. You will see a confirmation message asking if you're sure you'd like to complete this action. Select "Yes" or "No."
Selecting "Yes" will allow your computer to delete the cookies.
Deleting these temporary internet files only takes a minute or two.
If you haven't deleted the cookies in awhile a task bar may appear to show you're the progress of the delete.
When the computer is finished, simply close out all the extra boxes that popped up.

Disable Web Content Filters

Web filters are in place to protect a user from Phishing, or the process of a malicious website acquiring sensitive information like passwords from a user, or other confidential information.
They work by checking the sites that you visit against the company's database of known Phishing websites.
Some users feel that this is an invasion of privacy.
You may choose to disable these web content filters, if you already have security software equipped to protect you from Phising sites.
Start the Internet Explorer browser.
Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options". The "Internet Options" window will appear.
Select the "Security" tab and click on "Custom Level". The "Security Settings" window will appear.
Scroll through the settings and locate the "SmartScreen Filter".
Click on the option for "Disable" to turn off the web content filters in Internet Explorer.
Click "OK" to close the "Security Settings" window and save the settings.
Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" window.
Mozilla Firefox
Start the Mozilla Firefox browser.
Click on "Tools" and select "Options". The "Options" window will appear.
Select the "Security" tab and remove the check-marks next to "Block reported attack sites" and "Block reported web forgeries".
Click "OK" to close the "Options" window and save the settings.

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 lock the facebook site


The Internet is a vast web of inter-connected servers which may host inappropriate websites for certain people, especially children. The following instructions are for blocking malicious and unwanted websites in all versions of Internet Explorer. If you are using Firefox or other browsers, you may want to consider another, much more advanced way, to block websites using a host file: Use a Hosts File in Windows. Here is the easiest and most effective method to safely surf the Internet through IE.
1)Open Internet Explorer. In the Menubar click Tools ? Internet Options ? Content. In the Content Advisor box, click Enable.
2)Click the Approved Sites tab. Enter the address of the website.
Keep in mind - if you want to block the complete website put * in front. For example to block myspace completely, type *.
Click Never and then OK.

3)Click on the General tab and make sure to selectUsers can see websites that have no ratings
4)Enter a password you can remember easily with a hint.
5)Click OK to safely surf the Internet.
6)Microsoft uses the Family Online Safety Institute for the rating service. You can customize and see if that fits in your need.Consider installing web filtering software which allows or disallows websites based on their content.

If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Thanks.

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

HP calls my HP Pavilion dv9417cl Notebook PC a "Vista PC" and will not support it after I upgraded the OS to Windows 7. Nvidia doesn't appear to be of any help either. windows auto update keeps...


You should of used the Windows 7 Advisor before upgrading to Windows 7 from Vista. The advisor will indicate the hardware and software updates and changes you'll need before performing the upgrade. If you've already installed Windows 7, you can go to the Microsoft Update page and see what kind of updates you need for Windows 7 to work in you laptop. Also, go to the HP website and check the drivers download page for your computer with Window 7 installed, download the drivers, and then install them one at a time for each device. You won't need to talk to a human to do this.
