Introduction: How to Get Around Trend Micro Blocks
A foolproof guide to getting around annoying parental blocks. I had to deal with these, and I don't want you to. Please use discretion in doing this, as I am not liable for any consequences. This is simply for those who are too old to have parental blocks, but have parents who insist on cradling their children and protecting them from the interwebs.
Step 1: BEFORE YOU START
You must have an administrative account. IF YOU HAVE A LIMITED ACCOUNT, then follow these instructions. IF YOU HAVE AN ADMINISTRATIVE ACCOUNT, continue to step 2.
-Restart your computer.
-As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8 to enter SAFE MODE.
-Log into the ADMINISTRATOR account.
-Go to control panel.
-Go to user accounts.
-In safe mode, as an admin, you can to grant your REAL account administrative abilities. Change your REAL account type to administrative, not limited.
-Restart your computer, normally.
-Now, when you log into your account, it should be administrative. Now go to step 2.
Step 2: CTRL-ALT-DELETE
A man's best friend. Use him. Go over to the "Processes" tab and scroll down until you see a process called "TmProxy.exe"
Step 3: Now for the Obvious Step
Delete the process entitled "TmProxy.exe" It will warn you that it may cause instability, blah blah blah, click YES. Take the metaphorical red pill. DO NOT delete the other TM processes. Only TmProxy.exe.
Step 4: Relish in Your Newfound Freedom
Relish in it. However, each time you restart, the proxy will be reactivated, so you MUST do this each time you restart. Luckily, it makes the proxy removal untraceable by most parents. Have fun on the nets, and stay safe.
