Hello, I booted my computer today, started IE, but it prompts me for a password for every web site because somehow the damn content advisor in tools->internet options got enabled, to disable it I need a password, is there a default pass, because i did NOT enable this myself. Is there another work around in the registry or something?
I can still use the Internet with mozilla firebird, but I wanna fix this cause I hate this unknown problems. BTW I'm running win xp pro and haven't done or downloaded any strange progs, I have a fully updated AV, and I am pretty sure I am free of spyware, (ran Adaware & spybot SD)

This is all you should need.
Just delete the "password".
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

Only time I had this problem was on a friend's computer running ME. . .this worked though. . .

Removing the password
1 Go to start, run, type "regedit" and press "OK".
2 Expand the folders down the left, in this order.
3 On the right you will see the word "Key" - Click it once, then press "del" or right click, and select delete.
4 Close the registry editor.
5 Go to start, run, type "explorer" and press "OK".
6 Navigate to C:\Windows\System and delete "ratings.pol"
Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.
