    I have tried everything that I can find to delete an internet address in my address bar. It is a porn address. I have ran a spyware scan, virus scan, ad-ware scan. I have cleared typed url's, deleted cookies, autocomplete forms, as well as passwords, off line content, history, temporary internet files, cookies, and other stuff that I don't even know what it was. I have done searches at the microsoft website, dell support site, google, and a bunch of other places. Nothing has fixed the problem. My stupid H went to this porn site and I cannot get rid of it. I do not know what to do, please help. When I clear the auto-complete stuff the only thing that still auto completes are things like search for and some desktop folders and internet favorites. I have done a search for this link on my computer and cannot find it anywhere. If you need any more information or this is not clear I will do what I can to better explain. I appreciate any help I can get. Also I want something to track every move that is made on my computer. Any suggestions on good reliable software that I can use? I have researched a few, but want to shop around a little. When I do searches there are so many that I don't know where to begin. I'm about ready to throw my computer out of the window.

    Thank you I will check into this, and if I can figure it out (I'm kind of slow) I will use it. I'll let you know how it works for me.
    Again thanks!

    Dear Iluv3cats,

    I understand your frustration. After all that you've done already and with
    what bigc has suggested, I do not know what else to do. I'm just a 'newbie'
    too.

    Maybe it helps if you keep your H on a short leash so to speak.
    If he can't stay out of the dangourous sites, then you have to take actions and treat him as if he were a teenager. I am sorry to say this but he is compromising
    your pc's security with this behaviour.

    I hope very much you get this straightened up.

    One thing that may help a little and to restrict some actions on your computer is to download Winguard:

    http://www.winguardpro.com/

    Sure, the FREE version comes with some limitations, but it is still a pretty good program, and you can, as far as I know, add some websites to be unaccessible.


    P.S. Does "he" realize the danger on visiting "those" sites even ?? :rolleyes:


    Sorry for not being much of help.

    Good Luck, Iluv3kitties !

    Once your system is clean, you may want to take a look here for further discussion on security and how to make your system that much stronger and here for more.

    This is what works really well for me, very simple to use and maintain.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D

    Blackspear,
    Thank you, I will look into this as well.

    I'm so happy I've found this site. I feel so stupid with the new windows, I used to know so much in the earlier version.

    Don't feel this way, we all have to start somewhere. Take your time and ask plenty of questions, we'll get you there...

    Cheers :D
