    Someone else on your computer probably enabled the content advisor. It is like a parental control thing. You'll need the password to get rid of it. Go to Tools-> Internet Options-> Click on the Content tab and under Content Advisor, click Disable. It will prompt you for the passoword before you can disable it.

    You might want to ask your mom if she's been messing around with your computer

    Yeah, looks like you can. I tested the method below and it worked like a charm. Good luck

    You can easily remove the password on the MSIE Content Advisor, Without
    the need for a reinstall or anything of the sort.

    Beware- the following procedure involves the use of the Windows Registry
    Editor. Changing values in the Windows Registry can seriously impact the
    usefulness of your computer. Proceed with caution, and touch nothing but
    the lamp.

    Go to the Windows Start Menu, and select Run.

    In the Run dialog, enter "regedit" (sans quotes), and press return.

    You will see a hierarchy, similar to the hierarchy displayed in the
    Windows Explorer. Instead of being composed of files on your computer, the
    hierarchy is composed of Registry keys. Each branch of the hierarchy has a
    small plus sign next to it which can be used to expand the tree.

    Click (single left click) the plus sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to
    expand that branch

    (at times in the following steps, you may find it necessary to scroll down
    within the hierarchy to locate the key mentioned)

    Navigate your way through the following:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Software
    Microsoft
    Windows
    CurrentVersion
    Policies
    Ratings

    You should now see, in the panel on the Right side of the screen, two
    Key-Value pairs.

    (Default) (value not set)
    Key [string of hexadecimal]

    Click once on the word "Key" to hilight it.

    Press the delete (not the backspace) key.

    Answer Yes when it asks you if you wish to delete the value.

    Close the Registry Editor by clicking the close button in the upper right
    hand corner, or by choosing Exit from the Registry menu.

    Congratulations! Assuming all is right in the world, you have successfully
    reset the password for MSIE Content Advisor. The next time you try con
    turn Content Advisor on or off, or change it's settings, it should prompt
    you for a new password, without requiring that you have knowledge of the
    old password.
