How to Delete Adult Websites

by Alan Okpechi

Adult websites can not only be offensive but may also contain viruses, spyware and malware that can affect the integrity of your browser and operating system. Viruses and other rogue programs can also redirect you or your children to adult-themed sites and leave a history of the sites on your computer's hard-drive. Internet Explorer and Firefox have means of deleting the history of websites. This information can be stored for months to years and can slow down your computer.

Firefox Instructions

Open the Firefox browser.

Click on "Tools" found on the main menu bar at the top of the Firefox window.

Select "Clear Recent History." Select how far back you wish the history to be deleted. Click on "Clear Now" to delete the history from your browser.
