Spam is normally caused by your email address being on mailing lists than spyware. There's not a lot you can do about it, but nowdays unsubscribing is actually working. It used to be that clicking on the unsubscribe link only told the spammers that they had a live email address. That seems to have changed. I've gone from an average of 30 emails a day (of which perhaps 3 were legit) to 2-5 by following those "remove my address from your database" links.

Sang is right... if you have a lot it might not even be a bad idea to reformat and get a fresh start (but make sure you back up your data or save it on a different partition because you will lose it!!!)

Spam generally just means that your email address has appeared on someone's mailing list, and they sell addresses to other companies. Think of it as an electronic form of junk mail, because that's pretty much what it is.

You gotta use Kazaa lite instead of kazaa media desktop. its normal kazaa but without the amount of spyware.

I use spybot and ad-aware, they work fine to me
