View Full Version : got caught downloading bad stuff

How the hell do you erase all downloaded videos during a session? I downloaded some questionable material and my wife goes to play some MP3s last night and guess what pops up? Is there a way to clear what has been viewed with the media viewer before the next user steps up to the plate?

A) Get her her own computer, yours is for "Buisness"

B) Setup seperate users

C) What media player are you using?

Ouch, sorry.

I would just set WinAmp/iTunes/whatever to your default mp3 player. Anything but Windows Media Player.

Apple Quicktime: File > Open Recent > Clear Menu

Windows Media Player: Tools > Options. In the new popup window, choose Privacy tab. At the bottom of the Privacy tab, use the Clear History button. You may also want to uncheck the option to Save file and URL History in Player.

Real Media: Tools > Preferences. Select the General Section. Clear History button in lower right corner. You may also want to uncheck the option to Enable a History list in File menu.

Thanks! Yah it was bad to fall asleep during the Falcons game and have my wife wake me up and say "Are you watching porno on this computer?" I was so tired that I couldn't really make up anything. I was just honest. I was like, uh, yah I did.

good luck with the cleanup (both digital and marital)

Thing is, she was cool about it after awhile. We even had a nice laugh about it this morning. Women are strange, they will accept your deviance if you are just str8 up and honest about it with them. It was funny though, think about it. My little innocent wife pulls up her MP3 list to listen to some easy listening crap and up comes a chick riding a big one.

Maybe this will bring out the freak in her?

I can't see how any woman could get too mad about this...

ask her if she wants to watch.
