Suddenly cannot now Unsubscribe spam

  StanB 08:15 AM 10 Mar 13

Using Outlook Express, on the bottom of most of these spam pages it has message saying 'If you wish to unsubscribe - click here' This has no effect now whereas it I found it very useful previously. Thanks for any help. Stan.

Ouch, all you are doing is confirming to spammers that your email address is valid and sending back to them information about your pc that may lead to them targeting you for spyware and malware. It might look like an Unsubcribe button link - but do you ever remember actually subscribing to them in the first place?

Never click on anything in a Spam email don't even open them, just delete them unread.
