Okay, before the obvious comments begin - my teenage son has apparently visited several porn websites (adolescence, hooray!) and now i am afraid there are tags, or cookies (or whatever they are called) on my PC. If I Google search for something, it automatically fills in some of the searches he has already done - is there any way to get rid of this as well. Are these two separate issues, or related.

Thanks for the help.

Did you delete cookies, temp internet files and clear history? Then go to the content tab and clear auto complete.

No, I haven't done any of that yet. Pardon the simple question, but how do I go about doing the above?

Open an IE browser, then go to tools/internet options.

The autocomplete function is under the Content tab (EDIT: under tools/internet options as candy described). Click on the autocomplete button, then clear forms and passwords. If you like, you can also set it to stop doing that....although seeing as how IE is retarded, it will ask you over and over again if you want to turn on autocomplete...even when you tell it you do NOT want to be asked again.

Hope that helps.
