2) Type in RegEdit and select OK.

3) Now click on the little plust to the left of H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

4) Continue to drill down, always clicking on the plus sign at the left of the named key, through Software, Microsoft, Windows, Current Version and Policies.

5) Now click on the Ratings folder. 6) In the right pane of the RegEdit window you'll see an icon called Key. Click on it and press Delete.
7) Next, choose Registry and then Exit to exit RegEdit. You've just deleted your original Content Advisor password.

8) Restart the computer and run Internet Explorer again.

9) Choose View and then Internet Options (or Options for version 3.x). For IE 5 or greater, Click on Tools, Internet Options.

10) Click on the Content tab and click on Disable. When asked for a password, don't enter anything; just click on OK. This will disable Content Advisor because there's no longer a password.

How can I change my wireless password


First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (written at the back of router and lookup for the options to do the following: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password password.)
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Next step is to secure it:
1. Look out for "Wireless Settings" and select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Apply

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

I forgot my Username And Password in my router , DIR-600 Please help me !!!!


Hey there, I've actually just a while ago just typed out a pretty big guide on how to restore your password so I'm just going to go ahead and copypaste that ^^

Hey there, To fix this problem we're going to try and access the control panel of the router and changing the password again. Since you haven't specified the router's brand or type I can't say what the default password for your router is, however usually the password will be written somewhere on the router, along with the IP adress to access the control panel. If it isn't, check which brand and type the router is and go to this page to find out. If the IP adress of the control panel wasn't listed on your router, you'll have to find this out for yourself. Usually you can access it by going to http://192.168.0.1/. If this shows you a page or a popup to log in, go ahead and skip to the next alinea. If not, follow this guide to find out your router's IP.


If you have ever changed the password, you can restore your device to the factory settings to reset the password to the default one. This is usually done by pressing the small reset button on the router for about 20 seconds.


Now assuming that you got both your router IP and username/password and you can log in, then you only have to change the wifi password again, it should be fairly easy but once again I can't give a detailed guide on that since I don't know the router type.



I hope I was able to assist. If I was, please don't forget to rate this solution

How do we get a WEP setting to set up internet access on our son's DSi?


If you set up a wireless home network, you should be aware of the WEP key that locks it. If you can not find the key, typer your router's brand into google to find a user manual that will teach you how to access your router from your computer to change the password.

Need to change access to myspace


You cannot change an e-mail for myspace once you have set it up (as far as I know, anyway) If his father has changed the passwords for everything, you need to get it from him, or your son if he has it. I'm afraid the only way you're going to get into that is if you actually have the passwords. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
