    You don't need to do anything to get that stuff. There are no worm filters. Just don't open any attatchments without using thier scanning software first. There is a link that says Scan Before Downloading. ANd another that says Download Without Scan. They use Norton...

    The spam buster is something that you have to train. When you get spam open the message but do not open any attachments with it. Then just click on the link above that says THIS IS SPAM. After a while your spam will be minimal. And later none at all. It all goes into your BULK mail and you can just empty it.
