Unhappy IP

Call your Internet provider and ask them to change your IP. Else you can go in every spam you get one at the time and unsubscribe witch is what i do if I don't get too many.

hi

buddy, thanks for he help.I called my ISP (SHAW) but they said there is no possibility of them changing the IP address coz they say spamming happens all over the globe and they cant everytime change the IP for every client of them and they are very much reluctant to talk to me...i dunno why ......now i guess the only option is to go with the IS ADS blocker but where would i get it for free ? and the freeware which i got of it was also not working (problem said in previous post).


Thanks a lot

What sort of spam is this? While the message is up, can you hit Shift-Print Screen and then paste this into word and attach the Screen Print to a post on here?

rajan what mike is trying to get at and me also is that you are not being hacked by someone who has your IP. most likely you have been infected with a download trojan.

you should download a trial version of norton anti-virus and scan your entire computer.

Default Geeezzz

Just get a firewall, windowx xp is actually well secured if you downloaded all the security patches and activated the firewall.

for e-mail spam, make sure you block his adress in your outlook or whatever e-mail you use and wait to see if he try to spam you, meanwhile, sleep and stop worrying.

How can you e-mail spam someone with his IP if you havn't hack him to know his e-mail adress?? I don't think you can e-mail to an IP, so don't worry about it.

That's what I'd do for sure.
