When I get an email with a photo on it I double click it and Nero Photosnap viewer opens and I can see the photo. Earlier on I did this but then hit thr forward arrow to see the rest of the photos in the viewer. there were images such as mobile phones, company logos etc but then I came acroos 15 poor grade porn shots and then other pictures i did not recognise. If i right click it does not give any info apart from pic4.jpg etc. I would like to get rid of all these photo and your help would be appreciated thanks

Dont give email address to sites you dont trust, it's as simple as that.

Crikey, "poor grade porn shots". Sorry, my sides are still splitting from that.

The easiest way is to:
1. Watch out for 'dodgy' sites

or

2. Go to START - (right-click on) MY COMPUTER - SEARCH - ALL FILES AND FOLDERS - and in the part that says 'All or part of the file name:' type in *.jpg and hit SEARCH

This will show you all the images stored on your computer (as a jpg) and you'll have to use your own initiative as to which ones to delete.

I hope this helps.

Call Crimestoppers to report yourself for possessing indecent images.

A very nice group of police officers will gently smash your door down at 5.00 am and take your PC away.
Problem solved.

You've obviously had experience of such a situation. Perhaps you could help Nessie in other file extensions.

To be sensible if you clear the Temporary Internet files you will probably get rid of these files.

In Internet Explorer go to Tools > Internet Options> and on thhe General tab > Delete Browsing History.

Could try and improve them with Photoshop

Why would the police be interested in an adult viewing pornography?

Thanks for all your help both serious and funny. Getting rid of the browsing history did the trick. thanks

Glad it helped.
I've been asked this question several times before and it usually works.
Although why they always think of me when they have this problem I really don't know ;-))
