Well there is nothing to worry about really. If the cops can get all the contents of a hard drive that has been formatted im sure they can tell what was put there and what was looked for.
The cops really go after people who make and trade it because those people have collections and there is a profile that the pedos fall under. It would be like me mailing you an once of coc aine and calling the cops to have you arrested for posession once you checked your mail.
The only people who will be prosocuted as a result of this are the people who keep the photos that get storred on their computer and or do not report it. So if this happens to you or someone you know just call the cops and you will be fine.
You really trust the cops to care if someone else put it on your computer.
Big city departments might have computer forensics people but many small departments do not and would not care you are just another conviction to them.
Many southern state cops are so corrupt that they would not care unless you could pay them off.
you would just be another star on there record of convictions.
This is just a small number of the cases where the cops did not care.

Only real way is to physically destroy the hard drive. Reinstall your apps and get wise to security.

It's your responsibility to know what's in your car, your home or your computer. Telling the police that the porn files on your computer arn't yours is akin to telling your teacher the dog ate your homework or telling you....

If you really don't want to fear about this : use a system that will never need antivirus.
Linux, ubuntu is quite simple for human being. Or a mac if appearances are impotant, and if a luxurious gadget help you in your self estime.
