    Do you have 14 IE windows open?

    More details, like OS would help.

    OMG - trojan haven! YOU are the reason everyone else in the world is getting
    spam - it's all being routed through YOUR COMPUTER!

    Well, maybe not ALL of it, but I bet you have spyware, trojans, adware, and
    such up the yahoo.

    Do you have AV software? Of course. It's important, right? So is a firewall
    (*especially* on broadband) and anti-spyware tools.

    Spybot Search & Destroy

    Ad-Aware SE


    (all three of the above can be downloaded from

    Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta for XP



    Download each, update it, run it. Update and run each one about once a week,
    just like your anti-virus software

    Add a firewall - maybe your ISP provides one for free, many broadband
    carriers do.

    And a hosts file -

    Be sure to sign up for the update notices - this guy is honest and doesn't

    send out any spam.

    Before you go, read up on the subject of Safe Hex:

    Safe Computing Guide

    Protect your PC

    Safe Computing Practice

    Safe Computing Practices (Safe Hex)

    I bet you didn't know the Internet could be so 'unfriendly'.
