This is a question My computer gave away my secrets

A good friend recently found out his girlfriend was pregnant when google autocomplete came up with 'symptoms of pregnancy'...

Has your googling been your undoing? Has someone found your gay porn stash? Have you had a Gary Glitter moment in PC World? Tell us how your computer has ratted on you.

Not my good self but...
... my uber-respectable, pillar of the community, staunch Christian father-in-law. Round the in-laws one day recently, he's swearing (mildly) at his elderly laptop and complaining how slowly it's running. I offer to take a look, suddenly he clams up and says that it isn't too bad really, etc.

"Nonsense, I'm sure I can help" quoth I and grabs it... Never, never have I seen a machine so utterly crammed with the telltale signs of a serious pr0n addiction. Trojans and viruses by the score, desktop, start menu and favourite links to porn obviously added involuntarily by clever little filthmongering websites, IE homepage hijacked to an 'adult' search engine, and three separate premium-rate dialer scam things.

Moral of the story - don't get hooked on interweb pr0n if you don't even have the computer skills to clear your IE history, delete shortcuts or run a virus check.

On reflection, the worst thing was how many of the sites seemed to have an incest theme...
