porno filth on hotmail

How can I clean up my hotmail junk page.

I keep getting porn on it, sexy wives offering threesomes, penis extensions, viagra. I mark them as plishing scam but they keep returning.

I also get a constant stream of pictures of "available local women" on the side of the screen.

I also have a g-mail address and this site never has this problem.

I am 78 years old and no longer interested in present day off line activities, also my wife often wants to read my mail.

Any suggestions,

Contact your service provider or put a filter in your system. There are a number of filter downloads available on the internet, some free other are fee paying. Try httP://www.majorgeeks.com for some results and reviews.

Quite a number of service providers already have filters in their systems for such things, and most work very well. TalkTalk introduced theirs a year or two ago, and it works great. From a daily high influx of spam and naughties to now virtually nothing.

I don't even get sexy wives offering twosomes :(

In the junk folder, tick the box marked All, which ticks all the messages. Then click the 'Sweep' button at the top and select 'Block from...' on the drop down menu. Then delete the messages.

You may have to do this three or four times to block them all, but after that you'll be junk mail free.

What spuds suggests will probably work well with an ISP's own email address but may not work with hotmail. onionskin's solution may work. However I dislike hotmail. There are too many instances of reported hacking, etc. It may be time to stop using it.

On XP , Open Control Panel,Internet Options,Content Advisor (Enable)

Click the item you want restricted and adjust level.

When finished OK and re-boot computer to enable new settings.

I do not know if Win 7 or Vista is the same.
