Make sure you are connected to the internet before uninstalling K9 so your license is properly released. If this is not possible, you can continue to uninstall, but you will need to request a new K9 license if you choose to reinstall K9 in the future. Also, please make sure you are logged into your Windows Administrator user profile. Attempting to uninstall K9 from any other user profile than "Administrator" will not work.

  1. Click [Start].
  2. Click [Control Panel] (Note: if you cannot see this option, it may be under[Settings]).
  3. Open [Programs and Features] (Note: This will be called [Add/Remove Programs] in Windows XP).
  4. Locate Blue Coat K9 Web Protection in the list of programs and click once to highlight it.
  5. Click [Change/Remove].
  6. Click [Yes] when you are asked whether you want to completely remove K9. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNINSTALL K9 WITHOUT A PASSWORD. By design, K9 will block all internet access should one attempt to uninstall K9 without using a password. Attempts to modify K9 at the registry level will have the same effect.
  7. Enter your K9 Administration password and click [Uninstall]. If you forgot your password, click the "Forgot Password..." link to have a temporary password emailed to the email address on file.
  8. When prompted to reboot your computer, click [Yes].
After rebooting your computer, K9 will be completely uninstalled.

Hi im anthony and i had bought a laptop from a guy and it has k9 web protection on it and im tryn to get it took off can u pleasde help me


there are two methods you can try.
Method 1
If you have the administrator account password for the local computer and the best way to uninstall K9 web filter from the local computer is to re-install it! Re-install k9 web protection will simply get you a new license code and a new password you can enter without the need of old password.
1.Open K9 web protection website 2.Click "get K9 NOW" tab on the top-left 3.Fill out the information and your email. 4.Download the K9 Web protection software from the link included in the email and keep a copy of the license. 5.Grab a version of the K9 web protection installed on your computer, a Google search should do the job. 6.Open "Task Manager" by press (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and end the process K9filter found in the "Process" tab. 7.Now, you can safely delete the K9 web protection program files. Open computer explorer and go to the folder where K9 is originally installed. It can be found mostly at C:\Program Files/Blue Coat k9 Web Protection. 8.Remove the contents of the folder but not the folder. 9.Run the K9 web protection setup/installer file which has the same version as the one you just delete 10.Provide the license and create your new password 11.Point the installation folder to the same folder you just empty the contents earlier on 12.Now you can have a re-installed K9 web protection with a password you know. How do you uninstall K9 web protection now? Use the new password you just created If something goes wrong, install the K9 web protection program downloaded from Step 4.
Method 2
Reboot Windows into safe mode: restart your computer and hold "F8? key until you see the menu to choose "Safe Mode" Login to windows and go to "Program Files" directory and delete the K9 folder manually (delete only the contents but leave the folder) Click "Start"->"Run" and type "msconfig" Check the tab "Services" and tab "Startup" Un-check anything that is related to k9 If somehow this method is messed up, try to download K9 again to at least restore your previous installation. If this still does not work, try to install Revo Uninstaller.

For a temp fix, try this - One way to get around k9 web protection:
1. Go open the calculator application (Click on start, select all programs, select accesories, select calculator)
2. Go to the top left corner and select help
3. Once the help menu goes down click on "help topics"
4. Right- click on the top- left corner of the box and click on jump to URL...
5. Type in the web adress of the website you are trying to access and that should do the trick.

Option 2 :

Ctrl + Alt + Delete.... Find the process and end it...

If you don't have administrator rights, restart computer and then go to BIOS and delete from there ( i wouldn't recommend you do that unless you KNOW what your doing or else your gonna mess up your computer)

K9 protection


WARNING: K9 says if you fool with the installation, it will disable internet access. There is no warranty on this method, but you can try it. Summary: Delete the license file, download a new copy, install it, request a license code from K9, set your own password, then uninstall it.
