I received a Toshiba A305 for Christmas and while trying to google certain areas I find that I am prohibited from viewing the sites by Sonicwall. Each time I try I get the message "forbidden category" for what is an completely inocuous site. I am the system administrator and owner of the laptop. How can I get rid of or disable this filter?

SonicWall is a hardware based firewall device between your PC and your Internet connection.

The message your getting is coming from the SonicWall device. Your trying to access something that isn't allowed by the SonicWall administrator. I.e. your boss or parents or whoever owns the network your on.

Did you have another computer before that connected the same way? Did it have the Sonicwall filter?

Thanks. Panera Bread owns the WiFi network I'm using. That's where the block is occurring.
