Sex sites, get rid from favorites list, please

  LAP 19:24 28 Apr 2004

Just recently when I log onto the net I have 6 sex sites appear in my favorites listing. I delete them and everything is fine until I log off then when I log on again they are back. They would appear to have latched onto something, but what and where? Any ideas?

o/s win xp pro. Explorer 6. Bt openworld.

Thank you..

Try running Spybot and /or Ad Aware. and try using Trend's free virus scan click here

Dumble452, thank you for replying. I do have full version of Trend PC-cillin 2003 up and running. I have just run another update and full scan, nothing found.

The mind boggles, mine that is!!

Hi there

The virus programme will only find virus's
If adware or spyware (a programme that will report your surfing habits or direct you to particular sites) has sneeked onto your machine the virus soft ware will not detect it. Do a google search for spybot s&d download it and follow the instructions. You maybe surprised what it will find.

PS run it in simple mode unless your a computing god.
