Default Help with windows registry

Hi I was wondering if someone could explain to me what i've found in my windows registry, if it's dangerous and if I should remove it.

In internet settings>history>P3P folder there is a really long list of files, all named with offensive websites e.g. porntracker.com

I don't have much experience with the registry but I'm thinking surely things with that name can't be good, plus I know no-one has been on anything of that nature. Any explanations would be greatly appreciated.

all i can say is that windows keeps a record of sites known as flagged..such as tracked pron sites. there is a way to turn it off, so that it can't keep track of the computers activity, but i don't remember how to do it.

search out windows cleaner / windows washer / or history eraser in google..

So would I be right in thinking then, that this P3P folder isn't doing my computer any harm? Was just a little concerned because of a recent outbreak of malware, PUPs and trojans.

nothing to worry about, it just keeps track of what most sites would be filtered..
