PC Security

Having tried various anti-spam, spyware and firewall systems there does'nt seem to be a programme which COMPLETELY eliminates unwarranted, unsolicited, and I hasten to add, obnoxious e-mails.
There must be something which is foolproof?
Any ideas anyone?

Nothing is foolproof.
You need to choose good anti-virus tools, firewalls, etc.. and use your commonsense

If you don't use commonsense, there is no program in the world that can protect you...

If it can stop me gaining access to your machine it is foolproof - as I am a fool :-D But as Matt says you just need to use common sense and run scans all the time and make sure it's always updated and you have a very good level of protection. Just think of all the poor sods out there who don't bother with firewalls and anti-virus - they will be a much likely target than you are.
