It seems that whenever I type in an invalid website address, it comes up with teh pr0n search sites... Which is not something I want to happen. Anyone have any reason why, and how I can stop it from doing this?

Use the right addresses! Otherwise you're subject to whatever Internet wants you to see.

To be honest, there are probably just as many pr0n sites around as there are valid websites (though some would argue pr0n sites aren't invalid either). So basically, you mistype something, and chances are you'll encounter a porno site. Also, a lot of sites have caught onto the fact that people misspell websites all the time, and purposely set up sites with names one character off the normal address. It's only about $5 to register a web address to a webhost, so it's not hard to do. And, they can point all of the different "close but not quite" addresses to the same host, so they don't have to remake websites or anything.

You see, I thought normally internet explorer opened up a "This page cannot be found" page. It's not like that some people have made sites with similar names. It's even when I type something like "ksn;laknf;ljn" and just press enter. It'll take me to one of 2 porn sites... Which isn't good...

Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Hmm, at the bottom when I type in an invalid adress, it comes up with an IP adress at the bottom. Is this possibly the problem?

(PS: I'm just downloading all the updates for Spybot Search and Destroy, so this may not be neccessary soon)

EDIT:

Ah. This is true. I do have firefox and I don't have this problem. However, my parents use this computer, and they're not going to learn how to use firefox just on my say-so.

Also, the IP Address is: 64.28.178.4 - This shows up in the bar at the bottom very briefly

Great. I have Spybot search and destroy, which is updating at the moment, but as soon as it's done, the problem should be solved... Aye?

possibly im not sure about the quality of spybot search and destroy

once its done updating run a spyware scan

if it doesnt pick anything up then get another anti spyware because its obvious youve got it

Ok, apparantly, i can block the IP address from loading... Does anyone know how to do that? I use Norton Internet Security.
