Porn sites in my registry!!

I am running Windows 7 and whilst having trouble removing a program I edited the registry to deal with it. While I was there I found, what appeared to be a very, very long list of, amongst other things, hard core porn sites!

This list appeared in HKEYUSERS, HKEYCURRENTUSER and HKEYCLASSES_ROOT and were found under software/Microsoft/windows/internet settings/zonemap/domain.

The list must have run into the hundreds and as neither I nor my wife had visited these sites I was a bit concerned and wondered how they got there.

Using SpywareBlaster?

They are a list of Blocked sites used by your security programs or even IE blocked list.

Nothing to worry about.

Many thanks for that I do use Spywareblaster. I'll stop giving my wife the third degree about sites she has been visiting;-))
