    One of my friends called me in a panic the other day. It seems his 8-year-old daughter was surfing the Internet, searching for Barbie dolls, games designed for children, and other things of interest to 8-year-old girls, when something bad popped up on the screen. She may not have understood what she saw, but she knew it was bad and so she called Mom and Dad.

    You can probably guess what popped on the screen. That's right, a page with explicit, graphic pornography. But wait, there's more. It gets worse.

    Bookmarks for "mature porn" also popped up all over the computer, placed everywhere from the desktop to the Quick Links toolbar of the browser, to the Favorites area in Internet Explorer -- and these links appeared for all three users who can login to this system. The browser was also redirected, or "hijacked" to display an explicit porn site as the home page, and any attempt to change it back were to no avail. An application also started running secretly in the background, ensuring any attempts to remove these links would be replaced.

    are you sure dady wasnt looking at porn priviouse to this experince sounds like a dowenload hi jack

    so call free pornsites do this then a program alpears if you click yes to install you get all that nifty stuff plus a beatiful dialer

    if i was you i look for a dialer in the system if you find one then somebody with acess and dowenloaded this prior and now anytime you start the internet it hijacks the browser

    its actualy perty old

    im a big porn surfer so i know

    last year or the year befor i brought that up

    i know how to prevent that

    but this means dady and momy cant surf porn no more if you fix the IE settings

    so you either buy the 8 year old her owen pc and get aol for kids and set up IE settings

    or you as adults stop surfing porn and fix IE seetings lol

    one or the other

    to do the above in that picture you have to go to tools in internet explorer go to internet options then go to the custome button and ,ake it look like the picture on top

    click apply and your done

    you will notice something you cant purchase stuff online or edit your profile or cp usser at message bords

    to fix that when you plan on buying stuff online or submiting information or editing your profile at bords like wilders you have to do the same thing algain except this time say enable active scripting option and enable javah and your done to be child safe

    just do it algain and pick disable for active scripting option and javah
