Resetting Content Lock

I forgot my Content Lock password - how do I reset the Content Lock on my computer?


Some countries require content lock to be engaged: for example, Germany. If you live in a country where low violence settings are required, removing the content lock is illegal.

To reset the content lock to off and remove the password, execute the attached reg file.

  1. Download reset_content_lock.reg
  2. Right-click on the file and select Merge.
  3. Click Yes on the next dialog box.

Some server admins may force "content lock" on client machines connecting to their server. German servers may be required to do this.
