How to Enable or Disable Vista Internet Explorer Content Advisor


information   Information
Content Advisor is a tool for controlling the types of content that your computer can access on the Internet. This will show you how to enable or disable Content Advisor for all users in Vista. Content Advisor is disabled by default in Vista.
Note   Note
Depending on how you configure the settings for it, Content Advisor uses ratings that websites voluntarily provide to block or allow certain content. Because not all websites are rated, unrated websites are automatically blocked (but you can choose to allow them). Once you've adjusted the settings and turn Content Advisor on, it checks websites as you visit them.
