    Can adware, spyware or trojans put info in your history. I found some questionable things in my children's history that they claim they did not go to. They said that it must be one of the above programs that put it there. My husband immediately installed a prevention program. I thought that our virus program protected us form all of this.

    Hi and welcome. In answer to your question, yes adware, spyware etc. can add very strange things to your history indeed. And no, unfortunately a virus program does not stop their lowdown dirty tactics of such things. There are other steps you can take and I'm sure someone else will be along shortly with suggestions. Just wanted to keep the kids out of trouble for now ;)
