    For the last year or so I've known my dad visits porn sites. I've come to term with the fact most men do. Thing is, he's always been lazy about deleting browsing history, and I come across it all the time. It's not something I like to think about. So I find myself cleaning up after him, I suppose.

    The thing is, the *******'s gone and downloaded Internet Explorer 8, and it shows every page visited on the drop-down browser thing. Obviously he doesn't realise that. It's very visible and I'm scared my little sister will find out. It isn't nice.

    I've been on a mad deleting frenzy but they're all there, and they're going to keep building up. I'm embarrassed for him, for me, and I don't want my sister to know.

    Any thoughts????

    I really don't want to mention it to him. We don't get on at the best of times. Actually, I was wondering, is there a way of getting rid of the 'history' part on the dropdown menu?

    Make a new user account, one for yourself and your sister and a seperate one for your dad?

    That could work. Would internet access just sort of transfer by itself? I'm not very technical you see!
