Try a system restore to before you were browsing these sites; also try a spyware checker - say, adaware from lavasoftusa.com, spybot, or the likes. Also clear out all temp internet files, cookies, and run a registry cleaner. If the file returns after being deleted and a reboot, it may be necessary to do a manual registry edit for it.

Well at least your honest!! Most people say "I let my friend/brother/pal use my pc and"

Clean out all temp files and then get spybot from click here and adware remover from click here

install a run these and they should clear your problem. If not post back.

To clean it out of the registry go to run, type regedit, highlight My Computer, click edit, click find, type vivid girls or whatever it is called exactly, click find. Delete any ref to vivid girls, click find next, again delete any ref to your problem, keep clicking find next until its finished with no more references. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE. Make a backup copy of the regstry before you start in case of any mistakes.
