Reg entries - WinXP

During my PC's weekly scan with McAfee this morning, I happened to look as the screen to check its progress.
Shock, horror, I was sure I saw the words "Hot Sex"..
As I grabbed a pencil to note the location, the scan kicked off again.
All I can remember of the location was:-
HKU S 1 15 (or something like) with a long reference after.
Would anyone have an idea where to look in the registry for such an entry and perhaps more to the point, if it wasn't an illusion or just wishful thinking ;-), how did it get there?
The scan completed successfully with no virus found but I don't fancy running it again and staring at the scan for a couple of hours in order to confirm or otherwise the entry.
Thanks.

Quite possible a restricted site.

In Internet Explorer, Tools > Internet Options > Security tab. Click on Restricted Sites then click the Sites button and you'll see them listed.

The references you see flashing by on most anti-malware scans are as VoG™ says the restricted and other suspect sites.

These are just the sites the scan is comparing to make sure they're not present on your computer. And don't worry - I have Hot-Sex and many others on my restricted sites.

Hi. Thanks for the info. I have had a look VoG™, and there is something like I think I saw.
OK - job done.
Thanks.

You can always run regedit and type it in find.
