Deleting a Websense password allows it to be reset.

Websense is a commonly used security gateway software, typically found in public schools to prevent children from accessing adult-oriented websites. This also can be used in the privacy of a home, and a password allows you to circumvent the barrier to access incorrectly blocked websites. However, if you have forgotten the password to the Websense software, you can delete a file on the computer to delete the password and then reset it.
