How to remove K9 without password
Posted on Jul 21, 2011 by Author
One of my clients recently called me, and asked me how do I get rid of this K9 internet protection? Turns out his laptop was busted, so he took his kids laptop with him. But he forgot that K9 limits what websites
he can visit, and even worse he forgot his password for K9. So I remoted into his system and hacked the system to stop K9. I figured others might be in the same situation so I will share how I did it.
Keep in mind this does not remove K9 from your system. It just disables it.
Instructions for disabling K9 Web Protection without a password
Open Control Panel
Open Administrative Tools
Look for the Service by Blue Coat, Right Click Properties
Change the Startup Type to Disabled.
Click on Apply
Stop the service
Close all open windows ( Services, Administrative Tools, Control Panel )
Open My Computer
Open C: ( or whatever drive windows is installed on )
Open Windows ( or whatever your Windows Folder is called )
Delete the file bckd.sys
Reboot the computer
K9 should now be disabled.
At least this worked for me.
Hopefully this helps others who need to disable the K9 Web Protection
