Hi. Have a simple issue that I'm certain someone knows how to fix. I am a pastor and have a friend who has unfortunately utilized our computer to view sites that I do not desire to be on my computer. He apparently viewed some pornographic material and clicked on a video sample on a website and played it through Windows Media Player. Because I know nothing about computers, what do I need to do to either delete those files or completely remove Windows Media Player. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

There is no need to remove Windows Media player. You might need it later to play some music or watch other movies.
You can download ccleaner, wich cleans up your PC pretty good:

Make sure you get the latest version.
Among others, this little program deletes all temporary internet files. If the person saved any of the offensive software on the PC, you'll have to locate them and remove them manualy

hope this helps,
greets

It is not sure that he actualy saved the files to disk. You can check by looking at:

Start > My recent Documents

If you can find files there of offensive nature, it means that they are saved somewhere to disk. You'll have to right-click such a file and click properties.
In the 'Shortcut'-tab you'll find the target. That's the location where the file is saved. You can also click 'Find target' there.

If there is no offensive file in Start > My recent documents, then he'll probably hasn't saved anything to disk.

Check this BEFORE you run ccleaner, because the program will remove the shortcuts from the 'My recent documents'
