Press CTRL, ALT, and DELETE simultaneously, bringing up the task manager Highlight "Wnldr32" and click 'End Task'.
This will kill Net Nanny until the next time you restart your computer. After you restart your computer or restart Windows, Net Nanny will be running again.
To disable Net Nanny permanently:
Open the file c:\windows\system.ini. Under the section marked "[boot]", there should be a line labeled "drivers=" with some stuff listed after it. Remove the word "wndrv16.dll" from the "drivers=" line. (If there are other words listed on the "drivers=" line, leave them there, just remove "wndrv16.dll".) Save changes to the file and restart your computer.
After you restart your computer, Net Nanny should be permanently gone.
To clear the log file without needing the admin password:
Go to C:\Netnanny (or whatever directory it's been installed into)
Delete the file "Wnn3.log"
NOTE: This file can't be edited, as it seems to be encrypted, but this will sucessfully clear the entire log without any passwords necessary.
