Shared wireless networks

Ok, so I've looked at some porn using the private browsing feature in leopard. My girlfriends PC shares an internet connection through an Airport Extreme. Nothing else is shared through this network.

Can my internet browsing adversely affect her PC through our shared wireless router? She's starting to see a bunch of unexplained pop-ups and is beginning to ask questions.

If so, what's the fix?
