My sister has started getting the usual spam and even porn spam.
She has never posted to a newsgroup. In fact she hasn't even downloaded any newsgroups. She wouldn't know what to do. She is completely PC- illiterate. It takes her all her time to access Outlook Express. She could never learn how to use Mailwasher for example.
Is it possible this spam is coming from her Hotmail account, and if so is it just a case of deleting this account to stop the spam?
She used MSN Messenger at one point, which was set up for her by her daughter. Could this have anything to do with it. I am not familiar with the workings of this program at all!
Grateful for any help on this.
