What you're running into a system that is designed by Microsoft to
help parents (or possibly employers) keep computer users from
accessing various Web sites when using Internet Explorer.
Actually, I researched this on my own a couple years ago. I was
playing around and set the Content Advisor so that it wouldn't access
any unrated sites. Then I promptly (like within five minutes) forgot
the password. Well, practically all sites, including CNN.com, which I
view frequently, are unrated. In order to make Internet Explorer
usable, I had to fix things without knowing the password.
You basically have three choices. They are:
1. Use some sort of password recovery software so you can find out
what the password is.
2. Edit the system Registry so that the existing password is disabled.
(This is what I did.)
3. Use a browser other than Internet Explorer.
First, you could try using password recovery software. Most password
recovery software uses a "brute force" approach, trying countless
possible passwords until it finds one. So it may or may not work,
depending on what the password is. Here are four programs you could

Internet Explorer Password Revealer
Advanced IE Password Recovery
The second approach is to modify the system Registry. DO NOT DO THIS
UNLESS you back up the Registry first and are sure what you're doing.
Making a mistake in the Registry can make your computer inoperative.
Following are three sites that tell you specifically how do modify the
Registry. Do any of these methods at your own risk!

The third approach and probably the easiest is to use a different
browser. Here are two browsers that in my opinion are even better than
I hope you find this information useful. Best wishes with whichever
approach you decide to use.
