  1. First off, call the guy and see if you can get him to give you his password for that so you can shut that censorship nonsense off.

    If that doesn't work, try contacting 1-800-4-MY-XBOX Generally speaking they can handle basic troubleshooting, so this may qualify.

    You could also try formatting the HDD if you haven't done that yet. Though, I would look into this as I am not sure it would actually reset this particular setting.

    All in all, your best bet is to contact the guy, and/or keep trying Google with differant keywords.

    And in the end, remember never to set up parental controls people.
    Censorship is evil, and it does more harm than good.
