I am 17 years old, and my stepdad likes to have as much control over as possible, and has made it so I have to ask for his password whenever I want to download something, or update any existing programme, I get locked out at 11 in the evening everyday, every site I use has a locked 'safety mode' or 'strict filtering' on it, I have to get his password whenever I want to install a game, and loads of perfectly normal sites are blocked.
Now he's forgotten the password and can't be arsed to do anything about it. Does anyone know how to disable these controls without a password?? I have tried using the USB drive thing to reset the password once, but he found out and hid it!
It's not about watching porn, it's about having the freedom to do whatever I want on my laptop without having to ask for a password which he has now forgotten.
OK. Well, why don't you download another copy of Windows, or a different OS like Ubuntu and install it on a new partition, and use that to download whatever you like and access sites freely? Then, whatever you download on the new partition can be accessed on the main one that you're using now.
Download a new operating system, like Linux portable. You can even hide it in a cornered partition of your hard-drive. I have to say, your step dad is a real pain in the arse. Won't be long before you have the chance to move out and do what you want, so just hang in there now and don't get into trouble.
