I hope someone can help me. I have an situation in my family where someone is dealing with a serious porn addiction issue. There are several sites listed in the Internet Explorer history (running on XP) that this person claims to have never visited. These sites are not in the temporary internet files. (Though those could have been cleared. Of course, one would assume he would clear the history while at it. But, I have read that there are issues that can make the browser history return after you attempt to clear it. So, maybe he did clear it.)
I know that it is possible to have websites you have never visited show up in your internet browser history because of some spyware or something. But, how frequently does this happen? Is it reasonable to believe that this is the case? Or is it just a possible but unlikely explanation?
Basically, I am just wondering what the most plausible scenario is.
