    computer speed and porn

    i'm not sure if this is a hardware question but it concerns the entire computer: has there been a study as to whether pornography browsed on the internet slows down the computer speed?

    i'm not talking about internet speed because that's something different, i mean it slows down start-ups, slows down different processes, and this is in regards to just browsing and occasional small storage of porn on the computer

    the storage is usually deleted within the day

    any ideas? thanks!

    well I wouldn't single out porn as the pest, but probably more spyware and trojans, along with porn dialers and the such. follow eggheads spy removal found here . let us know if that does not clean up your system.

    Phishhead is absolutley correct about the dialers,trojans,and spyware.In addition I would also say that avoiding popup invitations to download pieces of software in order to view or enhance the site's content,will help avoid the most serious pests.By accumulating all the previously mentioned garbage you will be running many more processes which will slow your machine down,especially if they are all calling for an internet connection.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Hmm, a question about porn and computers? Man you've come to the right place. The guys here seem to be experts in both fields.

    I know after a heavy night of porn it slows my PC start up time by an hour or more, I just can't wake up the next morning to hit the start button

    I need to go to the doctor and get some viagra so I can keep up with my PC, it's hell getting old......
