So...I have a problem.

 

An EXTREME problem.

 

There is no way I can go onto youtube, Tumblr, and half of the internet because of K9 Web Protection. I'd take it off, but there's a big problem.

 

My sister installed it to the computer, lost the password, and lost the email. So...I'm stuck with this thing. Do you guys know ANY way to get it off, legal or otherwise?

 

....Legal, or not otherwise because I don't want to rot in a posh federal jail cell?

No she didn't. You're in highschool and that's the standard system they use.

My sister gave us her old work computer that they gave her because they didn't have much use for it, since it's so old and crappy. I usually can do without all that social media, but it's affecting other stuff too.  I can't go on your site because it's labeled "Proxy avoidance", and this is ticking me off.

 

And seriously? What do they think I'll be looking at? Porn?

A couple years ago my mom put that on my desktop in order to try to get me to do actual stuff other than play on my computer. :P I found a way to uninstall it but I forget all the steps taken. I know I had to use Revo Uninstaller Pro (there's a trial version you can use for free, only needa use Revo once) and then you have to go into the System32 file ,I'm not telling you to delete it, but there IS a K9 folder IN the System32 file that you have to delete. 

 

Use Revo Uninstaller to delete anything related to K9 from your computer, then like I said in the System32 folder is something that has K9 in the file name, delete that, then restart your computer. If you did everything right K9 should no longer be on your PC.

 

Those are my really rough memories of what I did, I would link a youtube video that I used to do it but you said you can't watch youtube videos soooo... :P

I can't tell of you're being a dick or not. It's a close call, but like I said. It's funny, don't get me wrong, if he does, I mean. Like, 'here's a gun, here's how you hold it against your head. I'm not telling you to shoot it, but there it is, next to your head."

 

No she didn't. You're in highschool and that's the standard system they use.

Look, kids have to learn to play Runescape on the school library's computer on their own. It's a right of passage. Also, like the way you're like, 'nope. You're full of shit, but here you go. Porn!' Fuck being adults.

Can you not just boot into safe mode and disable it from auto startup via msconfig?

Nope. K9 has taken some serious measures to stop all disabling of the program.

I tried that safe-mode thing and freaked when I couldn't get on the internet when I disabled it. Sheesh...These people are serious with their jobs...

 

And who the hell thinks I would delete system 32? You tick me off. I'm not THAT ignorant...

 

Thank you for your help, Sethre! Now I can watch Good Mythical Morning....AT NIGHT!

 

I'm so rebellious.... :D
