unwanted application

A couple of days ago I booted up my computer and saw a short cut to an application (nasty sex) which was trying to connect me to the internet.I have tried to delete, destroy and uninstall it but cannot. I am running windows xp home, any ideas.

Have you tried downloading and running AdAware click here or Spybot SD click here. One of these will probably sort it out.

I am running adware and it has picked it up and blocked it. I was able to delete it. I'll see what happens when I re-boot. Thanks

Re-booted, application has gone.
