SurfControl. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

SurfControl is a popular commercial web filter designed to monitor, manage and filter the Internet content, prevent users from visiting potentially harmful web resources, prohibit unauthorized usage of e-mail, file sharing software and instant messengers. SurfControl is made to protect the network from malicious parasites and dangerous user activity. It is a powerful and fully legitimate product.

However, sometimes SurfControl can do more harm than good. When improperly configured, the application may restrict access to secure legitimate web sites, computer game resources, e-mail services, information portals and other popular Internet resources.

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to bypass SurfControl. The program usually runs on a remote server that manages numerous clients – user computers. The user doesn’t have any utilities to disable SurfControl. The application can be uninstalled only by the system administrator who has sufficient privileges to access and manage the server. Nevertheless, there are few known ways to bypass SurfControl:
1. use IP addresses instead of host names in order to access restricted web sites;
2. connect to the Internet through a proxy server;
3. try specifying addresses without the www, ftp or other common prefixes;
4. install an application made especially to bypass SurfControl.

    Everybody, it's not SurfControl stopping you from going to web sites. It is because your organization chooses to block you from going to these sites based on their Acceptable Internet Usage Policy. If for some reason you are being blocked you need to let the administrator at your organization know that you need access. The administrator can easily add that website to an allow rule for each user, group of users or the whole organization by simply dragging the URL and dropping it into the rule. Simple.

    So, I would suggest that if you are going to complain about being blocked that you know what your organizations policy is on internet usage, Playing games and shopping are fun, but cost billions of dollars a year in lost productivity, internet security threats such as Spyware, Malware, phishing, hacking, you name it! In addition, confidential data leakage, legal liabilities, non-compliance. The internet is not a toy for a business, it is a tool that helps generate revenue and keep the business going. If you do not own your own business then imagine that you do, what if your employees were playing on the internet all day and you were paying them $10.00 an hour, plus insurance, vacation, etc. So really you are spending about $20.00 per hour and that is conservative. If a single user spends 1 hour a day for recreational surfing for a month that will cost your business $600.00 per month in lost productivity, Now imagine that you have 50 employees that spend an hour for recreational surfing, that will cost your business about $30,000 a month in lost productivity, The more the users the more the loss, the more the internet threats, liabilities, opportunities for data leakage, etc.

    So think about it as a business owner before you complain about being blocked.
