The other evening a friend with a farm holiday site where we regularly visit phoned to ask my help with a problem..
An acquaintance had sent her some photographs of a seaside holiday in an attachment. However when my friend opened the attachment she found lots of different images portraying cameras, clothes, shoes - all sorts of different items ; nothing pornographic.
As it was a telephone conversation I obviously could not help much. I suggested she run her anti-virus programme also her spyware software. I believe all was well.
Her PC runs Windows 7 and Internet Explorer. I have no idea what software her acquaintance's PC runs.
I am not asking for a solution, but the questions: has this sort of thing ever happened to you? Have you any idea what can have happened to bring about this odd situation? Could it have been images of Google searches? If so what happened to the seaside images?
She did say they had given their password to their Wireless connection to one couple who had stayed there and nearly used up all their monthly allocation of being on line. They had watched a film, or films, I believe. I have advised her not to do so again.
I have tried to Google answers but can't seem to phrase the "correct" question.
My apologies for all the vague details: they are all I have, I'm afraid.
If anyone is able to come up with a "solution", you deserve a laurel wreath!
My THANKS in advance.
