    hi
    i was recently checking my e-mails and someone had sent me a link, which subsequently turned out to be a "inappropriate" site.
    is there any way to delete all trace of this site as it could be quite embarrassing if someone checks my computer while fixing it etc.
    any help would be much appreciated...

    Ok, a few questions...
    1) is it simple to install/use
    2) will it get in the way when i am browsing/logging on
    3) does it contain spyware/adware?

    thanks...

    I usually delete all mine manually but decided to try IE Privacy Keeper.

    I would answer your questions as such:

    1. Yes
    2. No
    3. No

    I am not much on downloading to many extra programs but if you want one that does the job and is simple to use this one seems to fill the bill. (y)

    Hello Joe, Why not just delete cookies -- temp internet files--temp files --history? .
    I doubt anyone fixing your machine cares about an inappropiate site that was clicked on. Finding things like that take time and effort, and a lot of it.
    I would say close to 100 percent of users have clicked on something that was as you say, inappropriate. Some of us many times! :D
    I would just delete the things above, and not worry with it.
    My best to you, :) >f
