    Yes when you search for something
    I'm sure there is a way of turning that off. Why don't you do that so that way he won't get caught by anybody else.

    Can't you just tell both your uncles separately to be careful about what sites they go on because that's where the virus is coming from? Why do you even need to bring porn into it?

    Talk to the porn watching uncle and tell him to delete the forms when he does it again. Then surely it will stop, and the porn watching uncle won't be in the ****, and he will respect you and be greateful for covering him

    I seriously doubt that he watches it with anyone. I don't think he has a girlfriend, and if he does i doubt he sleeps with her, my granmother wouldn't allow girlfriends. Plus its viewed on the laptop so its for his own pleasure. But how about I lie to him and disguise this story using 'friend's to fill in the blanks of my uncles?
    Oh, when I was saying about couples watching porn I didn't imply thats what your uncle was doing, I just didn't agree with your statement that it's for "people with no lives" lol.


    I wouldnt - I'd just talk to him in private. IMO it's the best way to do things - just let him know to use safer sites, and that he has to be safer, and that you won't tell anyone that he watches porn.

    At the end of the day, he IS an adult and it's up to him what he does, and as long as it isn't bothering anyone, it isn't really your place to tell anyone (which is why if youre direct and ensure he porns safer then it won't be your problem anymore )

    Don't you think I have? But why would a 31 year old and 19 year old want to listen to me. I said it them. That hasn't been enough.

    Then don't you think it's a bit silly posting this problem on a forum where the majority of users are non-muslims. You are bound to get pro-porn replies.

    Anon please or delete.
    I'm really good with computers, and I can easily see know what people get up to. My uncle had problems with pop-ups and viruses on his computer, and I fixed them. Within, a week, the problem came back. I found that the cause of the adware was porn, because the person watching it deleted the history, but not the forms, and it was from the forms that I concluded that someone was watching porn. My other uncle is watching the porn because my uncle that told me to fix the problem isn't as smart as to hide his footsteps and hes very religious. I am someone that gets irritated very easily, so I'm really annoyed with the fact that my uncle teases me about the fact that although I claim to be a computer expert(which i don't), I've made the problem worse. If I grass, the uncle that watches porn will know that I grassed, and that will probably damage our relationship, and will make his mother and my other uncle go mad. What should I do.
    i seriously think you should confront him, alone, quietly, calmly and say: look, i can access hidden files on your computer and know that you have been watching stuff that you would rather i dont mention, and the pop ups or problems or wteva come because of that. i wont pass this on to anyone, but i though i should let you know.

    ps perhaps show him how to delete the forms then and there..

    Ok, so why is your uncle teasing you for not getting rid of it? Tell him you did and then they downloaded it again. If they don't listen to you and end up breaking their computer, that's their problem.

    Well, looks like things are going good. There is not a pop-up or virus in sight. Either he's stopped it altogether, or just wisened up about what he visits. Thanks for the advice, even though most was pretty useless.
