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.

Early Powerpoint
The early versions of Microsoft Powerpoint included a handy screen saver utility. This screen saver searched your PC for pictures, and displayed them, completely at random.

Unlike tamer, better designed versions of this type of screen saver, any image, in any folder on your hard drive was fair game. Including all the nasty little banner ads otherwise ignored during a 'normal' porn search.

You used to hear about teachers and businessmen losing their jobs because in the middle of their presentation child porno or bestiality images were displayed six feet high. Said screen saver is the real culprit.

Yes, I found this out the hard way. Fortunately it was a group of like-minded fellows who saw a photo of a busty young topless girl, dive mask and snorkel tilted back on her head, holding up two huge lobsters, during my presentation on database design. Several of them asked me for a copy of the photo.
