Download 'Spybot-Search & Destroy' on your pc, run it to find all spywares that might have got installed on ur pc & remove them.
This should take care of your problem.
Cheers.

If the porno window is a pop up then you have a cookie or ad tracker that is causing this. If it is not a popup window then you have some third party software causing your problem. I suggest you dowload Adaware and run it on your machine. It will detect most spy ware and ad trackers. From there you can have adaware get rid of your problem.

Spy-bot is also good to run. However through experience, adaware and spy-bot don't always detect the same programs or ad-trackers. You should run both.

Most spy-ware programs will find and eliminate the software that changes your home page.

AdAware www.lavasoft.de

SpyBot Search and Destroy www.download.com

You might also want to install Start Page Guard

This software prevents other applications from changing you home page.

There is also a program know as Adaware by Lavasoft that is quite good (maybe better than SpyBot) and it is also free. Your problem is definitely being caused by adware, spyware malware etc.
