I saw a post on the windows software forum about content advisor that was already solved, but I thought this might help also.
If you have forgotten or someone else has set a password for content advisor and doesn't know what it is, you can reset it by editing the registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Ratings

ALWAYS BACK-UP THE REGISTRY FIRST
at least the branch you are working on:

Just doubleclick the value named "Key" in the ratings folder then highlight and delete the numbers under "value data", there will still be four zero's left in this field when you are finished.They won't delete.
I will try to attach a screen shot to help clarify this.
When you click OK the value in the folder should now read(zero-lenght binary value).
Close the registry editor.

Your content advisor is now ready to accept a new password or none at all.

It took me a while to figure this out so maybe it could save someone else the time.

Good luck
Mike :D
