Hi there!

K9 Web Protection is a free Internet filter and parental control software for your home Windows. if you are a kid trying to use the internet with a pc installed with this program, then you really cant access any websites unless you have the owner of the pc remove that restriction for you. Otherwise, you can uninstall the program from add remove programs on control panel or just change its settings to now block safe sites like google and youtube =)

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

Hi im anthony and i had bought a laptop from a guy and it has k9 web protection on it and im tryn to get it took off can u pleasde help me


there are two methods you can try.
Method 1
If you have the administrator account password for the local computer and the best way to uninstall K9 web filter from the local computer is to re-install it! Re-install k9 web protection will simply get you a new license code and a new password you can enter without the need of old password.
1.Open K9 web protection website 2.Click "get K9 NOW" tab on the top-left 3.Fill out the information and your email. 4.Download the K9 Web protection software from the link included in the email and keep a copy of the license. 5.Grab a version of the K9 web protection installed on your computer, a Google search should do the job. 6.Open "Task Manager" by press (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and end the process K9filter found in the "Process" tab. 7.Now, you can safely delete the K9 web protection program files. Open computer explorer and go to the folder where K9 is originally installed. It can be found mostly at C:\Program Files/Blue Coat k9 Web Protection. 8.Remove the contents of the folder but not the folder. 9.Run the K9 web protection setup/installer file which has the same version as the one you just delete 10.Provide the license and create your new password 11.Point the installation folder to the same folder you just empty the contents earlier on 12.Now you can have a re-installed K9 web protection with a password you know. How do you uninstall K9 web protection now? Use the new password you just created If something goes wrong, install the K9 web protection program downloaded from Step 4.
Method 2
Reboot Windows into safe mode: restart your computer and hold "F8? key until you see the menu to choose "Safe Mode" Login to windows and go to "Program Files" directory and delete the K9 folder manually (delete only the contents but leave the folder) Click "Start"->"Run" and type "msconfig" Check the tab "Services" and tab "Startup" Un-check anything that is related to k9 If somehow this method is messed up, try to download K9 again to at least restore your previous installation. If this still does not work, try to install Revo Uninstaller.

To disable K9 Web Protection, follow these steps:

6. A message will pop up telling you to reboot your PC, do so.

7. After it boots up, there should be a message down in the right corner saying "K9 Web Protection has become Corrupted" or something similar. This is good :).

8. Before you can surf the internet, go to wherever you saved the K9 Installer from steps 1 and 2, and run the installer.

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!
Please rate the answer and a testimonial (comment) if the solution helped you to solve the problem... Thanks for contacting Fixya

How do you unblock all these websites from k9 protection for example myspace, youtube, facebook, and more?


Log into K9 as administrator with proper user name and password and enter the wanted websites or domains in the "exempt web sites" field. Make sure you do not enter them in the "BLOCKING" sites field as well.
