Windows 7: How do I recover content advisor?

How do I recover content advisor?

Hi, all:

I think one of my employees removed content advisor from his computer. I went to Internet Options then Content, but Content Advisor is not there. The first option is Certificates. Is it possible that someone could remove this option? If so, how do I recover this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello eggmalt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have IE10 now through Windows Updates, then you will have the "Family Safety" option instead of "Content Advisor" now. Content Advisor has been removed in IE10.

When you click on "Family Safety", you will be taken to Parental Controls. However, Web restrictions and activity reports are not included in Windows 7 Parental Controls like they were in Vista. You can still restrict the sites a standard user account can visit and see reports of their online activity by adding a service provider in Windows 7 Parental Controls, such as Windows Live Family Safety.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
