How to Enable or Disable Content Advisor in Internet Explorer

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 Windows 7. Content Advisor is disabled by default in Windows 7.

You will only be able to do the steps in this while logged in to an administrator account.

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.
warning   Warning
If you have IE10 or IE11 now through Windows Updates, then you will have the "Family Safety" option instead of "Content Advisor" now.

If you like, you can set to show Content Advisor in IE10 and IE11 Internet Options again.

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.
