Mabye it is some spy wear or a virus. Do you run Ad-aware frequently and Norton?

to fix the trojan If its in Temporary Internet Files, try going my computer > control panel > internet options > delete Files > then tick delete all offline content and ok. It will clean the folder, and should delete the trojan. For the porn sites, my computer > control panel > add or remove programs. See if there is a weird program thats installed, any XXX program or adwear(i had something that kept bringing websites up, i stoped it by looking there and found a program called "web saving from ebates" when i deleted it, no more pop up sites) :)

If it doesn't help, ill try and think of something else:confused:

hotfix is fine, there windows updates;)

Im not sure what TVmedia is though, maybe you should save a system restore point, delete and if you fine out you needed it, restore? Thought TVmedia doesn't sound like a thing that would make porn come up.

Maybe see if someone else uses it first as well(if other people use that computer).

how long since your last format? You have a backup hard drive? If so copy all vital files to that and reformat with a fresh install, current service packs, IE patches and anti-virus. Download Zone Alarm and you should be good to go. Take you a few hours max. I do a fresh install every 6 months.
