Possible Video Game Conflict

I'm someone who of course tries to stay away from pornography, but video games are my hobby. Grand Theft Auto 5 is a game that has been blocked from my PC only recently after the last update of Covenant Eyes at the time of writing this. I'm not sure if CE purposefully blocked it, or if there's just a conflict with both programs. I hope there's some way to fix it.

I found that Grand Theft Auto has actually learned how to run through Covenant Eye's filters.  I don't know how those evil developers at Rockstart keep coming up with new ways to pollute our eyes with p***, but we must be vigilant in the fight against it.  I recommend uninstalling the game, and then having your partner look over the computer to make sure that all of the dirty photos are taken off.

I've never had a problem with that stuff in the game i keep away from it. But I enjoy the game itself, but CE doesn't have an option for me to allow it.

Jack,

I haven't heard of a recent conflict with Rockstar Games. If I was you, the first thing I would do is uninstall/reinstall Covenant Eyes. I would do that because it's easy and, if something was goofed up during the recent update you mentioned, it'll take care of that.

The second item to look at is malware. Although it's not usually as crazy as the situations portrayed in movies, malware can cause conflicts between programs that were getting along just fine beforehand. I'll suggest running AdwCleaner because it's free, up-to-date, and fast. After rebooting the computer, try the connection again.

If that doesn't clear things up, you could change the Filter settings of Covenant Eyes. The Filter Guardian could turn off the Filter for your username, refresh Covenant Eyes for Windows, and try the connection again. This will give you a better idea of whether or not the issue is in the Filter itself.

Those are a couple of things to start with. If you don't want to work through those items, feel free to contact us for assistance. Our Customer Support team is ready to help troubleshoot via chat, phone (989.720.8000) or email (support@covenanteyes.com).
