for the last two weeks or so i have been receiving a large daily number of the above messages (all of which i delete via mailwasher) they are from varied greeting companies and usually 10-15 a day, xp sp2 and all updated, any ideas please or do i just wait for it to diminish?

As a precaution, I advise you to run CCleaner click here and also run all the anti-everything progams at your disposal.

I had the same problem just a few weeks ago, but of late they have dried up.

Windows mail (Vista) has a very good easy to use "Junk" email filter, so they where all automatically placed there, but as I say they've now dried up.

You're not alone - but they do appear to be slowing.

i shall continue with mailwasher then and wait to see if it does the same here.
