This morning, having about an hour before having to leave for work, I decided to read an ebook on my computer. I clicked "start," then "programs." On the menu of programs which came up I found one labeled "women." I clicked on it and pornography began to appear on my screen. Now mind you, I was not connected to the internet so this was from my hard drive.

I closed the window, went back to the start menu and right clicked on "women." One of the options on the menu which appeared was "remove this application." I clicked on that option and nothing happened.

I then went to the control panel and clicked on "add/remove programs." I could not find the unwanted program listed.

Can somebody please tell me how I can get rid of this unwanted program? Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

I had the same problem. Left click "start", then "programs", then highlight the one you want ("women"), right click to reveal "properties" and left click on it. Write down the "target" and "start in" info. Also note if there is a shortcut listed - you may need to delete that as well. Then go back to "start", go to "find" and "flies or folders" and put your "start in" or "taget" info in "named" and make sure it will be checking your hard drive. Delete your files/folders and then make sure your delete your recycle bin, too. Also, Norton makes a backup of deleted files so you'll need to delete the cache in that if you use Norton. Good luck.

How do you delete the cache in Norton?
