Content Advisor is a very unstable feature of Microsoft Internet Explorer. Its purpose is to block users from seeing websites with a parentally-specified amount of nudity, language, sex, violence and Live Nude Lesbians. It will also block sites that are not rated through various rating systems.

Content Advisor also has a nasty habit of enabling itself when you least expect it.

When this happens, you will be asked to enter the supervisor password upon opening Internet Explorer. Nothing you try works unless you have some infinite monkeys on hand.

The following steps may be taken to clear out the Content Advisor password and set it to be disabled, as it should be.
