If Someone forgets their We-Blocker password..

      'Search', Click on 'All Files and Folders',

  B.) Enter in SYSWB6 into the boxes that say 'All or part of the

      file name'  and 'A word or phrase in the file'.  Make sure you are

      Look in:  Local Hard Drive (C:)

  C.) Find the file SYSWB6 on your computer and rename it.

  D.) Right click on SYSWB6.exe and whatever other files have the

      SYSWB6 name in it and select 'rename'  Rename  it to something such

      as 'cookie' or 'goodbye' or something.

  E.) Go to control panel and then go into internet options, then

      choose the connections tab, at the bottom of that click LAN settings

      (Do this for each browser you are using)

  F.) Restart your problem computer,

  G.) Browse to a web page to see if you can browser freely (You are

      all set if you can browse freely now!, else go on to steps H and I)

  H.) Go to control panel and then go into internet options, then

      choose the connections tab, at the bottom of that click LAN settings

  I.) Uncheck or make sure "use a proxy server for your LAN" is

      unchecked.

                              But if they did not set a secret question..

3. Tell them to go to the lower left of the bottom of their screen (Where the time is shown and the   We-Blocker Icon is --usually a circle with a line up and down in the middle)

4. Enter We-Blocker user interface and click on 'Forgot password'

 The default Secret question is 'What is Your Pet's Name?'  and the answer is     'BOOTS'.   

It will prompt for a new password.   There will be two lines that appear, The top  line will have 5 (*'s) in it, the one right below it will be  a blank space.  Enter new password in Blank Space (if you just want to uninstall the program anyways, just use a simple password for this step) and follow instructions in prompt window. 

5. Proceed to uninstall instructions (in Page 42-44 of this Document) using the 'run' command and typing 'weuninstall'.   Use the new password entered in the above instructions to uninstall We-Blocker.
