Google & other search engines usually have an option to set search filters to "None", "moderate" & "strict" which can be set to block a lot of stuff.....some will even let you specify certain types of sites whether this is "adult", "gambling", "drug-related".
Just a case of setting strict filters for your search requirements.

I use a program called Netnanny. It seems to block all this stuff....although it sometime blocks a bit too much. Eg. it might block a site about Jamie Oliver - the naked chef, cause the word "naked" is on there. But better safe than sorry imho.

Sounds like you accidentally opened a dodgy site which has possibly infected your PC with some kind of browser hijacking malware.

I'd get hold of Spybot Search and Destroy as a 1st step to getting rid of this stuff. I'd also switch to using Firefox as the main Internet Browser and install the NoScript addon, which can prevent this type of thing in the 1st place.

what i dont understand is i googled the word "chicco hippo chair" as i wanted to find a pic and price of the item as i have one to sell,and i just went on to the site and once there it turned into porn,the same happened again later,didnt mention porn n the results
#7
i know i have avg which i used after it happened first time but came up with no virus etc,what is this firefox?is it instead of google?

You have indeed been infected, and any additional links you clicked on will have added even more infections.
The only software likely to be able to remove most of these now will probably be a paid for application.
You could try the newly released Spyware Doctor 5.5 free edition, it might be able to help.

Someone who has used that computer will have been on porn at sometime - I should know, its how i got it :)
#10
no-one has been on porn on this laptop,i have the main account only i know the password the other accounts have parental controls on that i set
#11
Pop ups are formed fromcookies that are stored from sites that have visited.

For example if you apply for credit cards etc online, you will receive pop ups about loans & credit.

Someone at sometime must have been visiting porn sites on your pc for you to be getting porn pop ups.
#12
Download this http://www.superantispyware.com/ and do a full system scan and then re-boot your laptop it will get rid of it :thumbsup:

This will definately work keep this program on your laptop and it will stop this happening in the future.

i dont understand that, this a new laptop only got it in feb, porn has not been visited from this laptop i dont see how anyone could have looked at porn on this

AVG is anti virus whereas what you have is a Browser Hijacker/Malware.

Ideally you should use three different types of security (can all be provided through one soloution)
I will explain what I use and what I class them as.

ZoneAlarm - This is firewall protection - Stops people being able to connect to your computer
SpyBot : Search & Destroy - This is Spyware/Malware protection - stops internet settings being changed when they shouldn't
AVG - This stops viruses on your computer.

Sounds like your using AVG, will have Windows Firewall (hopefully turned on) but are missing Spyware protection which is the problem.

Its not neccessarily from clicking a porn site just follow a poor link can infect your computer with Malware
#17
Sounds like spyware to me, I would try superantispyware, or asquared go to download.com, http://www.download.com/A-Squared/3000-2239_4-10262215.html?tag=lst-1 also AVG isn't the greatest antivirus in the world...its good and its free, try kaspersky's on line scan at http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner it won't remove it, but you can get a free trial which will if you need it.
Good luck

Firefox is a browser like Internet Explorer but safer, and no script helps prevent malware installing, highly recommended.
#18
Try downloading SpyBot Link Here and running a full system scan, it should detect some issues and stop the problem.

With SpyBot, Windows Firewall and AVG your computer should be secure just make sure it updates all the time.

Bare in mind Browser Hijacks - which direct you to different sites and popups (such as your getting) or not neccessarily viruses and therefore without a SpyWare program you will continue to have this problem

could have been in an email, dodgy site (not porn) anything, suggest beef up your firewall (zonealarm) also install McAfee site advisor, when you use google it gives green ticks for safe sites, yellow for not sure and red warnings...it is free, works with Internet Explorer of firefox, and helps prevent you clicking on what looks like an innocent link....you want dangerous just try doing a search for Barbie...shocking.

Trend Micro are great, just go to download.com and get a free trial of it to clear any unwanted spyware/adware on there. And do a daily scan to clear up any unwanted cookies etc. Works a treat for me!

Hi edjaned. Firefox is a browser, like IE, but it has great add-ons, which help you customise it. It is VERY easy to install and use. Go to the link below to have a look
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox
I always use firefox, no ads, no dodgy pop-ups

I tried all these spyware programmes when i got some adware on mine and the only one that got rid of it was the one i replied with http://www.superantispyware.com/
#23
Are you running Vista or XP?
If vista then there is an antispyware tool built in under security, add superantispyware to run on demand.
If xp then consider spyware terminator as it has real time protection built in (works all the time, not just when you choose to scan), and also use superantispyware to run a scan about once a month.
All these products can be found on [url]www.download.com[/url] complete with user and editor reviews.

its vista,so should i somehow get rid of ie?how do i find out what is already on this computer then maybe i could remove them and add new downloads to protect the pc
#25
oh, nearly forgot for antivirus try Avira as it recognises viruses, trojans etc, free for personal use and considered to have better detections than AVG, we use it at work and apart from the nag screen when you update it works well. http://www.download.com/Avira-AntiVir-PersonalEdition-Classic/3000-2239_4-10322935.html?tag=lst-10

Don't get rid of IE, you need it for microsoft update....want to see what you have loaded go to add or remove programmes.:thumbsup:
Download firefox in addition to explorer. go to add ons and get McAfee site advisor, NoScript and Adblock plus, this should give you just about the most secure browsing experience you can get. Highly recommended.

What you yourself clicked on isnt the issue, at some point someone who uses that pc has been browsing dodgy porn sites and thats how the pc has picked up some malware or similar.

My friend got this kind of rubbish from visiting an adult dating website, which isn't really porn...;-)

I also got crazy pop up stuff when I downloaded a sugarbabes song from a file sharing site .. it wasn't sugarbabes it was porn, I couldn't see anything all I could hear was this girl screaming in what I assume to be ecstasy, everytime I clicked it off, more and more of the same thing kept popping up, after a few minutes of panicking and frantically trying to get rid of them, I ended up just shutting my pc down and restarting it, then running all virus/spyware programmes.
There's a filter on some of these file sharing websites to fine tune what kind of stuff gets downloaded ... which I didn't know about til later.
Good job I didn't put it on when I had visitors!!!

You've now got Malware on your machine. You need to run spy doctor or something similar to remove the offending trackers you've picked up.

If you suspect someone else might be doing the porn thing on your pc without your permission, get key logging software, I've read it can trace every website typed into computer and usernames/passwords etc!
Would have to ask someone else what software is best as I've never tried it. That's if you think there is a possibilty of someone doing this...:whistling:

Sounds like spyware/adware to me....download the recommended programmes, update them then disconnect fom the internet and run antispyware and antivirus programmes.....if this doesn't work you will need hijack this and to post the report onto a security forum like

http://www.wilderssecurity.com/

this is also worth visiting for advice.
Again, first fix the problem, then stress about where it came from, once you have improved your security it shouldn't happen again.
#35
Only one thing to do, gather the info bout which programs u decide to use and write down the addresses(url), i vote for
Spybot
AVG or Avira
Adaware
be wary about people who tell you to download these products from a 3rd party site which often lead to such infections
Do a destructive recovery of your hard drive, go straight to collected sites and dl then install all
Once your system is compromised its not worth thinking a repair job, and consider using mozilla (or i use seamonkey ) in future
good add on for mozilla is moxbackup, easy peasy backup of favorites,emails, accounts and passwords etc

ran spy doc,said i had 99 infections and some other stuff,anyway they have gone now so just want to prevent it happening again.
i think i have a few different downloads now so somehow i need to sort out the ones i need and the ones i dont
when i first turn comp on this"my secure pc" comes on its something i havent bothered with as its £3 a month so after some advice of here i downloaded
avg
and c*** cleaner
on my desktop there is something called winzip again i think its something to pay for

i have downloaded a couple of things today of here spy doc etc
but im confused now about which ones to download/keep :?

keep the avg, ccleaner, spyware programmes....if you want to put a screenshot on here of your programmes I am sure we can advise you......I will say again, spyware could have come from all sort of places...doesn't need to be porn, dodgy dating, bingo, hijacked site, mp3 all sorts of places and AVG is only an antivirus not an antispyware...I bet most of your 'infections' were just tracking cookies, these cookies help you with log ins, such as HUKD and are harmless.
Has your computer sped up since running the scan?
If you or someone you know is IT smart you could run msconfig and see what is starting when you start up your computer.
Security should be:
Antivirus - AVG or Avira
Firewall - Comodo or ZoneAlarm
Antispyware - SuperAntispyware, Spybot, AdawareSE
Change to firefox for your web browser, with the add ons mentioned before.
Don't get paranoid about it, once you have set these up should be far more secure.

To filter offensive sites go here:-

http://www.google.co.uk/preferences?hl=en

and then select:-

[FONT=arial,sans-serif][SIZE=-1]Use strict filtering (Filter both explicit text and explicit images)

and set number of results to 100 and only display pages in English.

Works very well.
