Want to get rid of porn on your PC?

Question

How do I remove porn from computer. I see it on Adaware & Norton Scans listed under

C:\documents and settings\user\complete

I can't find that file when I conduct a search, but see numerous files being scanned that contain filthy words.

Thanks!

Try using this helpful utility: ToolBarCop

And /or the manual registry fix: (backup the registry first)

Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe)

Go to the following location and check each GUID sub-key, one of which is the malware toolbar entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions

Also check this sub-key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions

(check the values in the right-pane to identify the malware toolbar.)

Once you find the correct entry, delete the appropriate key.

Once again, remember to back-up teh registry and your my documents before trying these fixes.
