    When Stinger was finished it displayed a list of what it found and removed. If you saw that, you could then google it, find out perhaps where you picked it up. Could be helpful in the future.

    Anyhow, glad to be of help.

    Well...

    I won't say anything about "defensive browsing" because having to use Stinger is sort of like the morning after pill. I also won't say anything snarky, like "stay off Porn sites until you learn safe browsing.":lol::lol:
