    I have a feeling that there might be some kind of activity monitoring software installed on my computer. If there is, how would I find it and get rid of it?

    Or there might even be a content filter that is running.

    There are certain websites that I use to frequent, but now I'm getting a 404, BUT, for a quick second I'll see the title of the page load in my tab, and then go right to the error.

    Are we talking about something like spyware, or something like anti-porn software installed by your parents? Because if you're underage and your parents did install anti-porn software, go cry about it somewhere else.

    If you think you have spyware though, that we can help with.

    If some asshole did install anti-porn software then you could use the Ubuntu livecd or any livecd to look up porn if you can't get rid of the shitware.

    Is this on your personal computer, or at work?
