When you add web sites into the Trusted and Blocked Web Sites Lists use the template: *.websitename.com

Some Internet applications slowed down or displayed data are distorted

Some of the programs installed on your computer like Skype, radio, or on-line games work mostly on-line, and could fail to work when filtration is enabled. Make sure they work properly when filtering is disabled, and if it does then either:
   1) add this program onto the Trusted Programs list, or
   2) add the ports which this program uses into the Trusted Ports list

Uninstall CyberSieve

The uninstalling procedure for the CyberSieve application does not differ from the standard operation to remove a program from the Windows operation system. To remove CyberSieve from your computer, please click on the 'Start' button, and then select 'Settings' and 'Control panel'.

In the window opened, select 'Add/Remove Programs', push on the 'Install/Uninstall' tab, and double click on CyberSieve in the list of installed applications. To prevent uninstallation of the program by non-authorized users, CyberSieve will ask you for your administrator password. The program will be removed after pushing the 'Add/Remove' button and entering the password.
Restart your PC just after uninstalling.

These ways will work only if you know the administrative password to open the Control Panel or did not enter it at all. But if you forgot the password or the uninstalling procedure did not work for some other reason, please go to: http://www.softforyou.com/php_dir/download/cat_cs.exe to download the program (cat_cs.exe).

Activation problem

Open the CyberSieve Control Panel by double-clicking on the CyberSieve icon - a letter 'C' that appears in the system tray near the clock. If you use Windows XP and you cannot see the icon, please click on the circle-with-arrow icon near the clock to make the CyberSieve icon visible.

If you have not activated CyberSieve yet, you will be prompted to activate your copy of the software. In that case, please type your Serial Number and push the Activate button. You should get the 'Activation completed successfully' message in a few seconds.

Perhaps you are using firewall software which blocks the activation request to our server.
Please note that if you are using a personal firewall, you should add the CyberSieve executable (cscp.exe from your Windows System directory) into its trusted programs list or you should temporarily disable it.
Please note that CyberSieve uses the proxy settings from Microsoft Internet Explorer by default. Make sure that you are able to access the Internet using Internet Explorer.
Also, if you are using an HTTP proxy server, you can instruct CyberSieve to use that proxy to connect to the Internet by entering the proxy name and port into the corresponding fields. To enter the proxy server settings, please open the CyberSieve Control Panel, click on the Settings and navigate to the Proxy Server tab.

If that does not help, we will create a special program to activate CyberSieve on your computer without connecting to the Internet.
