Blocked site not blocked

I have a site listed in Internet Options/Privacy/blocked sites.

Every time I open my browser [IE] this 1 site still pops up - what else should I be doing to get rid of it since it looks as if it could be porn and my grandson will be here soon?

Sounds like a Malware program has installed itself. Do you run any Anti Malware programs? I suggest that you download and run the free editions of these.

Go to the 'tools' menu in IE and select Options. Select 'use blank'. as the option

If this does not work then your browser has been hijacked, do a site search on PCA for 'hijackthis' and follow the advice given.

Also run your anti-virus program...

Have run full virus scan & ad-aware. Seems to have gone away.
If it returns, how do I get the hijackthis log file checked - any ideas?

Thanks again.

Forum found, quite a few red cross nasties for me to delete. Thanks all.
