    Greeting's

    Even though you are busy, if you can just go to safety.live.com select
    ** FULL SERVICE SCAN **. Then in the options page that pops up select complete scan and you need administrator rights to scan the computer.
    ** REMEMBER TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE BEFORE YOU SCAN YOUR COMPUTER **.

    Start the scan and take your time getting back to us. The scan will take some time on a dial-up.

    tiger shark-the smallest file is still rather large. I'm sorry but I have no clue how to send it, please tell me how and it will be on the way.
    morganlefay-I've checked on the sites through Google and others (without actually visiting eck)and the more I check the worse it gets. I'm still around because I'm just not sure of what I'm seeing.

    ByTeWrangler, I'll have to do that tomorrow and thank you so much. By the way, how do I disable system restore?

    Go here, (click this) and let it download the file. If you are using Internet Explorer then tell it to open it, (ignore warnings about executable files being dangerous, this is a safe file), if you are using another web browser then you will have to work out how to find it and execute it yourself.

    Once it is installed then find the file you want to send and _right_ click on it. One of the selections will be Winzip with a little arrow by it. When you put the cursor on it you will get a sub-menu. On that menu will be an option that says add to [the filename].zip. Select that and it will compress the file. Then remember where it is and send me a Private Message. While you are sending it you can scroll down and it will give the the opportunity to attach a file. Browse for the file and tell it to attach the file then send the Private Message.

    I'll look at it and will probably have other questions... It won't be a "quick" process... But, unless you have other issues that I don't know about, then this is probably a sensible route to take for the time being.

    I have had a look through your hijackthis log file and everything looks ok, the only thing i am suspicious about is the contentpurity.net i have not heard of it before... is this something you have put on intentionally, because it doesn't look very genuine? Other than that your PC looks clean.

    Tiger Shark is right (as always)

    I am probably over reacting....being a mom too....

    These files can get onto a machine via various ways....through malware infections.

    Trust Tiger.....he knows his stuff and would probably the best one on this site to advise you...

    You really need to be sure of what you are finding here......

    oh and I forgot to mention, it is still worth running a decent anti-spyware program on your PC, my favourite is counterspy, you can get a free 15 day trial here http://www.sunbelt-software.com/CounterSpy-Download.cfm I have been googling and have found nothing to say that the contentpurity stuff is spyware, but nothing to say that it isn't either, personally I would remove it.

    I have downloaded xoftspy and adware.
    Get that cr@p off your computer. There's some very good imposters for removing spyware that actually install spyware. I'm not sure about these two, but it's tough to find anything via Google, which makes me leery.

    Ad-Aware (note the spelling) and Spybot are the best FREE tools for removing spyware. Ewido is popular here and undoubtably very good. Spy Sweeper and Spyware Doctor are probably the best fee-based solutions.

    As for unwanted content on your computer, i.e. child porn, you are better off not knowing any illegal content is there. Download and run a program called Ccleaner, and let it delete all the temporary files. It will most likely delete any porn files.

    In my experience, you do not want to be involved in any kind of law enforcement action regarding child porn. Police officials do not typically differentiate between naive computer users who have some unwanted porn on their computers, and pedophiles who download that stuff intentionally. A judge will do that in a court of law, and that is an expensive proposition.

    So just get the stuff off your computer, clean it up, and don't make a federal case out of it...

    I'm sorry... Actually, I'm not.... But that is just plain _bad_ advice, Period!!!!

    You have _no_ idea of the surrounding circumstances. So to say "you don't want to know" is utterly irresponsible. The OP might _need_ to know. This might be the "last little detail" that helps her make a safe and sensible decision.

    I will grant you that, for the most part, this "evidence" is innocuous and innocent - but without the surrounding information it is not up to you to decide what is good or not for the OP. That will be her decision with the "guidance" of others that may be able to better interpret it than she can coupled with her knowledge of the other factors.

    Police officials do not typically differentiate between naive computer users who have some unwanted porn on their computers, and pedophiles who download that stuff intentionally.
    Firstly, I would disagree with that statement, a lot!!! Secondly, why do you think the OP came here in the first place? Maybe to find out what it was she was looking at...

    Jennifer:

    An "OP" is the "Original Poster", ie: You... In case you were unsure. If you missed my response to my PM... You didn't get the file attached... I'm on EST time and am going to bed now. If you get it to me tonight I will look at it first thing tomorrow, (0500 EST), if not get it to me when you can... I don't think there is any rush on this unless you have other, more pressing, issues in the house. That's your decision... But let me look at the computer related stuff before you jump to a possibly very bad conclusion.
