We found a string of porn addresses in our 8 year old son's IE address bar. These appeared as a drop down, not as a part of auto-complete. He claims he didn't type them in IE. To my knowledge, the only way an address gets into the bar is if it was typed (I know that the history, which shows up in auto complete, can hold onto addresses accessed via links rather than direct typing-that's not the case here). Is it possible that we have some type of virus that is entering nasty links into our son's address bar?

Good pick-up. Didn't seem to be getting the answer I was looking for on other post so tried to ask question in more direct fashion in this post. Thanks for the advice.
