Lol....someone's been looking at porn.

anyway's to clear up the saved url's, you'll need to go into the registry.

to do this: start/ run/ regedit
once there highlight the computer at the top. then go to (Edit/find ) then in the box: type "Typed Urls" without the quotes.

whatever folder you find around the internet settings folder/ then you know that's it.

once you found it....just erase what is in the folder.

by the way....Welcome to C.F

haha...hiding pr0n?

You can do what mixx said, or:

If you're on IE:

go into options, and do the following:
clear cookies
clear temp files
clear history
all three of those are on the first menu.
then, I can't remember off the top of my head, having been in IE for a while, i think you go to content, then to AutoComplete, and clear all of those. That will clear any searches you have done.

And if you're in mozilla:

Just go into options, click on privacy, and select the clear all box.

\o/ only one command.

LOL, I recommend atleast some supervision of your children. Oh and if they have the root password they can totally knock out you account or change the password.

Better safe then sorry.

Cool

Thanks for your help guys!
...ya, i was looking at some adult content sites...ok it was porn!
but mostly stuff i surfed into.None that i ever typed into the address bar.
Why does it happen? I would just start to type "www.c..." and you would not imagine what would appear!
anyways thanks again you guys seem like a great bunch!
as a computer novice i don`t have much to add... but alot to learn!

Tromeo and Juliet, my favorite movie from Troma productions,
besides the Toxic Avenger.
