This internet filter is pissin me off. I can't view half the internet with it. And 70% of this forum is blocked as well. The filter came with the computer and so no one knows what the damn password is. I try moving it deleting it and renaming files but then it wont let me on the internet at all. Now here are a few it blocks for: Overrides, pornography, gambling, instant messaging, and chat site. I can get past the overrides with the website Atunnel. But that's it. My older sisters friend tried to get it off by downloading something called CCleaner off of download.com then he went on to task manager and deleted the procceses cwptray, cwsvc, and 2 CLI's. Then he went on CCleaner again and checked off those same procceses so that when you restart the computer they wouldn't start up. That worked for five minutes. I went on to YouTube (which was blocked for overrides) and watched a video, that stopped in mid stream. Then I tried going on something else that was blocked but then Content Watch popped up to block it. Now it's back. It has to go. It must DIE!! Not even the owner of the local computer store could get it off with backdoors and stuff. Now I've tried proxys, but all of them are blocked except for Atunnel. Anyone know what I should do? Any sites I can go to? Anything I can download? Anything you give me I'll tell you if it's blocked or not. I'm at the point where I'll buy software that'll get the password. Help me Kill Content Watch.
Can you kill it in safe mode?
If it can reinitialise itself even after you've manually ended the process and removed registry entries pertaining to it, then it's probably been embedded deep into the core of Windows - i.e it would be more hassle to remove it than it's worth.
My recommendation: Back up your files and reformat/reinstall Windows.
There are a few wipe and reload disks for a few of my friends computers, will they work with my laptop?
