Question about Computers & Internet
I have a "new to me" Toshiba A-15-S129 computer which has a password on the parental controls for internet searching. I can not get in touch with the person who sold it to me. How can I reset or bypass the need for a password? I thought about using system restore to go back to original settings but they must never have set up any restore points. It only goes back to last week when I bought it.
Can you re-install the OS? Do you have the OS CDs? If yes then re-install the operating system and all the protections will be erased. BUT, do take care of your data. Back it up. Specially the My Documents. And when you have done that, put the restore option on.

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.
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.
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.
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.
