Question Wrong site

A young friend of the family was looking for clothes on the internet for his rather plump wife entered "large women" intending to buy his wife something for Christmas, several of the sites offered were obviously porn, he is now worried that he will get a lot of porn spam, & his wife, using his PC will see it, & will misunderstand I tried to convince him that unless he opened one of them, & d/loaded nude pictures he has nothing to fear, would you put his mind at rest?

Just get some good spam filters and he won't have anything to really worry about. As long as there is trust between his wife and him, he should have nothing to tell her. Be honest and tell her that he was trying to buy clothes for her, but, because of the profility of pornography on the internet, it's almost hard to unavoid it...

I don't think there's a serious problem unless some dodgy software got into his PC or if he gave out his e-mail address.

If he didn't actually visit any of the sites and only viewed the search results, there won't be any problem. The search results page would probably remain in the history for a couple weeks though. Just tell him to clear his history, and he'll be fine.

There isn't a problem because he didn't click the links. Explain to him that nothing could happen because he didn't even click them!
