I am working on a computer and the lady has put a password in the contents advisor of her ie 5.5 but dos'nt know when or what is was. I have tried to reload ie 5.5, but it just repairs the istallation? leaving the password in.
Can anybody tell me how to clear the password or uninstall ie 5.5?
Thanks Ernie

Go to Start\Find and type in *.pwl delete the pwl file, that's the password list. Reboot and you should have no more password.

Hey Ernie,
I just checked the link and it seemed to work for me...aside from the info in that post, I don't have any other suggestions...sorry. If the link won't work for you...copy & paste or type it into your address window.
