    "Anything to erase my past history? pleaaase"

    1. Reinitialize and zero out hard drive
    2. Install completely fresh OS
    3. Create new user account
    4. Reinstall all applications from scratch
    5. Selectively copy over old data files

    Always use Private Browsing then you never have to erase cache, cookies or history. This is not a source you consider, but use!

    As for clearing what is there now:

    Safari
    Click Safari - Reset Safari (make sure everything is checked)
    Also Empty Cache (beneath Reset Safari).

    Seriously, this made me laugh...


    Stop watching porn then? OR. create a guest account and then set it to delete everything once you log out of it?

    16 years of on- line porn? How long have you been married? Your wife is obviously freaked out over your habit, so I would suggest that you give it up or prepare for life as a single dude. Find a sex addiction treatment provider or at least read In the Shadow of the Net and/or Out of the Shadow. I don't remember the author at this moment. His name will show up if you do a search of "On-line sex addiction"

    WOOOOOW guys I actually enjoy my habbit and watching online porn.
    Its not like I cry while doing it and then pass out only to be found naked lying on the floor.

    So to the point...
    I operate on a mac book pro, Is it so easy to detect the porn i watch after i have deleted the cache cookies and history on my mac?

    If you clear all of that that you specified you would be fine, she couldn't find anything.

    1. Tell you wife that watching porn on the computer is more important to you that she is
    2. Hire a good lawyer if you have lots of assets

    3. Go to a sex addiction therapist.

    Wait! I smell a troll....

    I have a feeling his wife might enjoy watching as well. I mean 16 years of it I'm sure she has joined in once or twice if not more.
