Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

  • How do I get rid of this porn in my browser?
  • My system is constantly resetting itself, blaming the drivers, even after I updated them. What gives?
  • What is AGP?
  • Can I link 5 different star topologies ...

How do I get rid of this porn in my browser? This actually covers several questions where people's browsers have been hijacked, or porn sites added to windows start up, or various other types of things. The very first step is to get and run a Spyware tool. My article Why, in IE's Tools, Internet Options, is the Home Page selection grayed and unusable? talks about one form of hijacking, but the solutions presented there apply here as well. THEN you'll also want to clear out Internet Explorer's history, as described in this article: How do I delete items from Internet Explorer's auto-complete list?. It talks about more than just the auto-complete list, and reader comments also include some additional suggestions.

My system is constantly resetting itself, blaming the drivers, even after I updated them. What gives? Many things certainly could. The original question mentioned possible conflicts, and that's certainly a good place to look though Windows is actually pretty good at identifying those itself, and disabling one of the devices causing the conflict. Based on sketchy information, I'd actually suspect hardware, and might try removing one component at a time until things start to work more reliably, and moving forward from there.

What is AGP? AGP stands for the Accelerated Graphics Port. In fact, on your computer's motherboard, it's another, special, slot that your graphics card plugs into. You can double check your graphics card's speed with any of several benchmarking programs available on the internet.

Can i link 5 different star topologies (with a switch in the center of each) to a central router connected to a server? Will this setup work if i wanted to successfully connect the server to the internet and give all the PC's on the network access? Yes. Sounds great.

The porn is probably unrelated to the virus. Scan your computer for spyware as outlined int the article, and I'll bet it'll clean it right up.

Three phrases should be among the most common in our daily usage. They are: Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate.

In reply to nanchman rosten's question: "Why dont the government block porn already." I have to say there is an easy way to block it on your computer. In Internet Explorer, go into Tools, Internet Options, and click the Content tab. In here, click the Enable on the Content advisor, slide all the bars to 0 if not there, and then click Apply then Okay. It should prevent it from being accessed. To make this even better, have someone else set a password that they know only to where you wont reach it.

Just stay off there sites. Clean your files on your computer, Get pop-up blocker, spam ware, spy ware, and all that stuff.

THen Keep your dirty hands off the key board if you can keep from typing in "Porn" in google. Get a grip. ITs wrong, and its easy to stop. Jerk the computer off the wall if you can't stop. Wake up.

How does porn site get into a person's computer history. Can it be a virus or do they have to visit the site. I saw "free porn" was in one of our home computer google searches. Does that have to be typed in by someone or can a virus or problem with one's computer cause that? I think I being lied to and I have to know the truth.

I am a beautiful blonde who loves sex , and have been "happily" married for 8 years, but I always sensed something wasn't right. Now I know: internet porn has been raping my husband's mind. I hate this crap. How can it "help" a man? It delineates his penis to being nothing more than a video game controller. He has been sinking into a lonely, dark, dirty world and it will be years before he can "make love" to me again. When will humanity appreciate our beauty without pushing the boundaries until we are nothing more than livestock? We are PEOPLE--not holes and boobs. As far as the above comment about the google search bar--face it--your man too, has traded in intimacy for intensity. Forgive, but don't allow it. Get him help, or your marriage will unravel as you see your husband pull farther and farther away...
