How to stop unwanted websites on my computer?

Question

I have search extender installed on my computer (not my choice) along with some associated things with the address of loof-for.com. I followed the directions that you gave to someone else about going through the start menu. However, I couldn't find the programs that way. What else can I do? This program is diverting my searchs and also installing porn websites on my computer. Thanks for any advice.

Set your browser security to HIGH One Internet Explorer, click Tools > Internet Options > then the Security tab and move the slider to MEDIUM or preferably HIGH The only problem with this is it may block access to some websites you want to see Ultimately your best bet is to get an anti-spyware program and scan your system regularly
