Default k i'm ticked off

alright....here's what has happened. a crapload of porn has appeared in my history!!!! but i don't look at porn. WTF? is it possible for some kind of website to like plant porn into your history?? i recently reformatted and am running windows xp pro sp2. i don't have a password on my comp, but the only people i could imagine being able to use my computer would be my mom or stepdad. and i'm pretty sure they don't look at porn (at least i think they don't LOL jk). no but seriously, my friend was using my comp one time while i was there, and he was typing in some web address and autocomplete kicked in with a shitton of porn that i didn't look at. anyways sorry for the rambling, but i'm pissed. so back to the original question, can websites i access plant porn in my history file or have i been hacked or WHAT?

ps - its happened more than once. oh and also, i have my browser set to not save history or cookies, yet somehow it has saved the porn...??

Well you can try Privacy Eraser , it will erase all history tracking.

if sites were putting porn in ur history it would go away the next time u logged on with not saving it. do u have a spyware checker or virus scanner it should have picked them up if hackers were putting them or other sites were.

Also Microsoft Antispyware does a brilliant job at clearing your tracks, and it's free. (Google it)

okay, well i reformatted 3 days ago and the porn hasn't appeared since, so i guess maybe i fixed the problem...i guess it was some kind of virus. but who would make a virus that puts porn on someone's computer? o well i think its over now...

btw, yea i'm gonna try microsoft antispyware soon....been wanting to try it for a while...
