My son was on a car magazine sie (fastcar i think) and he has clicked on a porn site which was on the site and now after repeated uninstalls and removal from the start up folder it keeps reinstalling at start up. Its called SexGo. Any ideas on how to permanently get rid of, and how to stop a repeat of this happening

1) Try Spybot click here

2) Get him a G/F

Hi Contractor, goto Start/Run/Regedit. press control+f and enter SexGo in the find box. Each time the search stops, you will see the word SexGo somewhere on the screen. (It may be a folder) right click and delete it. Next press F3 and it will go to the next occurrence. Continue till a box comes up saying 'Rgistry search completed' Close Regedit and reboot. The problem should be gone. Good luck, John. (Bikemadgrandad)

I recently had a similar problem and the program kepy reappearing. I eventually noticed an icon in the system tray. When i right clicked it it asked if i would like to uninstall, this finally did the trick as i could not remove it permantely from anywhere else.
