    its not that i want to go to those kind of websites...its just that my computer runs so freaking slow with it on, and i need the password to turn it off the "right way"....but i know how to turn it off with out the password, but i need the file name of it, and i can't find it anywhere, the block is called "We-Blocker" does anybody kno what the file name could be?

  2. best guess? weblock.exe but that IS just a guess.

    Surely if you know where it's installed (probably somewhere in program files) then you could find the offending application?


    See this is the advantage of running linux...no one else in my family can use it.

    Oh, that and the fact I'm at uni 90 miles from my family :D
     
  3. When you're in puberty, it's perfectly normal that you start experimenting and discovering your sexual preferences.. preventing the youth from developing yourself in such areas only leads to painfull situations..

    personally i think that people who use web-blockers are bad parents.

    apparently (sp?) they don't trust you.. so they install an application that prevents you from seeing stuff that is perfectly normal. and as we all know.. trust is the basis for any form of good relationship, even between parents and infants.

    btw..

    weblock.exe is NOT the name
     
  5. press ALT-CTRL-DEL, look the process up ( shouldn't be too hard to find ) and kill the process..


    or.. just uninstall the program..duh :)

    You know, a wise man once said, "Trust is the basis for any form of good relationship..." Wait, maybe that was AllodoX! ;)

    Again, if your parents have installed this type of program on their computer to keep you from viewing things that they think you shouldn't be viewing, because they don't trust you, you are only proving that you are not deserving of their trust by trying to get around said program to look at what you want to look at, knowing full well that they don't want you looking at it (that was a mouthful). Trust is built over time -- you need to "prove" to them that you are able to be trusted. If you respect their rules, follow their directions, don't lie, cheat or steal, that trust will come.

    I say forget about the porn until you have your own place and your own computer. Trust me -- it'll still be there, waiting for you!
     
  8. No offence, but some of the stuff that pops up while porn-surfing makes regular penetrative sex look like playschool.

    I wouldn't want my kid exposed to such things as snuff, scat or mutilation material.
     
  9. look at it this way : if you forbid them to do it, they will do it anyway.. sneaky somewhere else.. if you allow them to browse it at home, in the living room, you have some sort of controll over it..

    just my 0.02 €..
     
  10. Yeah, but if your kids are fairly well adjuest they won't NEED to look at it. Not if you explain it properly.

    ;)

    click on start --> run --> type "msconfig" ---> click startup ----> uncheck every unnecessary program
     
  12. Well if it was on MY computer (which it wouldn't be) I'd load the uninstall program into my favourite disassembler (either softice or wdasm32) and hack the thing to pieces to accept any password I throw at it.

    Or just to be ironic, perhaps any password except the right one :)
