Now go ahead and open the C: Drive of your computer and click on the Windows Folder followed by the System folder. Here, look for the Rating.pol file which should be renamed to Ratings.old and come out. Before you try connecting to the Internet, you need to go to the Internet Options once and click on the Content tab to enter the settings of the Content Advisor information.
