What is internet options

Question

Whenever I access the internet, (2) adult content web sites loads at the same time that my Home site loads. After the adult site loads, it automatically changes my default home page to the adult site.

The adult sites that load are:

www.slotch.com

www.adult slotch.com

www.xxxtoolbar.com

www.bargin buddy.com

www.istsvc.com

The adult site also loaded other adult oriented data including a toolbar that shows up on my internet toolbar.

I believe that my "son in law" was surfing a couple of adult sites and was somehow tagged by this site or through an email that I received titled Bargins.

I delited the adult site programs thourgh the add/delete programs in "control panel", and I even went into the registry to try and get to the root. I reset my home page to my original address (MSN.com) and even bought an internet cleaner to eliminate cookies, cache, and so on.

This seems to work for a period of a few days but then when accessing the internet, the adult site reloads "again". I go through the elimination of programs and registry sites once more and it holds again for a few days, but, comes back again.

Can you help, this is very frustrating and embarrasing. I have a daugher that uses my system and she has experienced this "auto" loading of web sites when she accesse the internet.

You could try blocking the site by going to internet options and set your security to high
