Hi. My stepson discovered some Craigslist sex ads and one porn site on his dad's (my husband) history. My husband denies knowing how they got there. He is on Craigslist frequently posting 'help wanted' ads and I was wondering if anything could have been sent to him and he didn't know? He claims that he has not opened anything up like that. Can unopened pop-ups go into history? I desperately want to give him the benefit of the doubt. His computer has been unprotected for a little while and he is wondering if this has anything to do with it? His computer has also been doing some strange things. If anyone can help ease my mind, I would SO appreciate it!!! I would love to know if in fact, the history CAN be misleading and not to go hiring a PI just yet ...just to trust him.
Can computer history be misleading? [Closed]

It is worth checking out for malware
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
- Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
- Select additions at the bottom
- Press Scan button.
- It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
- Please attach both logs generated.
