Bypass Child Safe & Virus Safe

This is a workaround for when Child Safe & Virus does not or cannot be turned off

Changing the computer's network settings to use any Public DNS should re-gain full access.

Try with Cisco’s OpenDNS using 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

OpenDNS provide instructions here : https://use.opendns.com/

For Google Public DNS it would be the same method using  8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

For an XBOX or Sony Playstation modify the network settings and specify the DNS manually as the OpenDNS or Google DNS values.

This matter does appear to be today's hot topic.
