    content advisor passwords (5.0)

    I have IE 5.0 (AOL version?) installed on WIN98SE. Computer is 2.5 yrs. old. A password has been entered for the Content Advisor, but I have no idea what it is. I don't think I entered it, as I've tried every one I was likely to use. Have also tried an "empty" password. Most likely, on of my kids wandered around, looking at stuff, and of course, had to enter SOMETHING in order get into that area the first time. My son doesn't remember having been there, but he has tried what he thought might be it, and that doesn't work either. It's entirely possible that this got set as long as 2 yrs. ago, so his forgetting that he went there, and forgetting what password he used isn't surprising. It isn't "enabled", and of course, can't be without the password. Can anyone suggest how to get around this? Will reinstalling IE work? Thanks.

    Thanks, that took care of it. I thought I'd done a search of the messages before posting, but perhaps I was in a different forum without realizing it.
