    Okay, I can't access typical sites like Youtube, Facebook, etc.
    So I need to get rid of this ASAP.

    Here you go: https://www.opendns.com/dashboard/settings/0/content_filtering
    In case you're not the network admin, you had to refer to your network administrator...

    Parents? Lol, no I was the one that installed OpenDNS. Although, it says my IP address has been taken. It puzzled me, but now i can't input my ip address on OpenDNS since it has been taken. So I can only get rid of opendns or change my ip (which i am having difficulties).

    I see, that's a different problem. You're using another OpenDNS user's settings (from same ISP), who did not keep his IP address information updated at OpenDNS, and you unfortunately inherited his/her former IP address. Leave him/her an angry message via the contact link on the block pages. As next disconnect from and reconnect to the internet to possibly obtain another IP address from your ISP.

    Good Idea conceptualy but fundamentally flawed in practise:
    This assumes the previous IP "owner" has a reliable connection that allows him/her to either release the IP explicitly or run ODupdate on a re-connection.
    I run a VodaFone payg mobile BB when caravanning and in marginal signal conditions quite often loose the connection.

    There's d*mn all I can do to fix the problem either for myself or the unlucky OP who has inherited my old IP in these circumstances although I do attempt to courtesously respond to these "irate" snottygrams that you so kindly suggest people send.... ;)

    Wow, so you're the guy who unintendedly impacted the OP? Great from you to come back!

    Well, there's an easy solution: simply don't maintain an OpenDNS dashboard network, or delete your existing one. You still can use OpenDNS for your lookups then, but the additional features don't impact you or someone else anymore, and you don't receive any complaints anymore. If you want to have more restrictive filtering, simply go for OpenDNS FamilyShield (just different DNS server addresses).
