Ok get ready for a good laugh ….but still at the end of the day I need HELP !  Please !

Ok here is the long version of my short story……Im married and yes I look at porn. Youporn.com  to be specific. ( Im a bad bad person I know)

Soooooo here the issue , my father who is a bit of a computer geek wanted to install some new programs for me and I had a panic attack that he would see what I have been up to. So after 3 weeks of excuses on why he can’t borrow my laptop I’m running out of excuses.

Yes I delete the history and cookies (no I don’t have any viruses) ……but what other options is there to make sure my father doesn’t find out he spawned perverted offspring.  

I can’t lie I’m pretty sure I will look at porn again until I see a burning bush with a booming voice that tells me not to. ( that’s a hint god if porn was so bad why did you invent it) 

Sooooo what programs can I buy to prevent me from having another panic attack…..thanks for your help.

BTW …..I have windows XP

The latest Firefox V3.5 has a "Private Browsing" mode which should do the trick.  But seriously dude, get help with your porn addiction.  It will eventually destroy your marriage!

Not to say I've never looked at porn.  Very few guys haven't.  But it's something I avoid now, having realised the damage it was doing.

Hello there... I've removed one reply (the format one), because that is not relevant... The other two options are good - use cccleaner or the "private browsing".

Some modern browsers (Internet Explorer 8, Firefox and Chrome) offer "private browsing) and basically it deletes everything when you close the browser, without you having to do anytning.

Best thread of the week! Gotta go with CCCleaner here, great piece of software. And do investigate the private browsing option (Chrome's my recommendation), it has heaps of uses other than the above mentioned (shopping, research etc)........... :-/

Just remember though, even with CCCleaner and the above inPrivate modes, files are still cached in:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\


So just remember to remove those too

That's for Vista/7, can't remember the path for Xp sorry, all my PCs are 7




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

Oh yes, read about it in the most recent (or one before that) NZ edition of PCWorld.

Also Download the Firefox Portable browser app as it allows you to run everything from a thumbdrive and all history etc stays in the thumbdrive.

If your dad does happen to find anything, just blame it on your sick pervert husband :)




For billions of years since the outset of time, every single one of your ancestors survived, every single person on your Mum and Dads side, successfully looked after and passed onto you life.  What are the chances of that like?

i hope your computer geek father doesnt read this forum, if he does you might want to also delete evidence of the cleaning software after using it.
by the way ccleaner is a great program

when it comes down to it your an adult, you can do what you like and i'll bet that anyone who would take issue with your perusals has also perused themselves ;)




this is where a signature goes
