blocking addresses from fake microsoft

By shail_rtz ·
Recently i have been getting mails,with microsoft logo saying it's a upgrade patch.I know it's a virus.I haven't opened any of the files,but my problem it that i am tired of blocking the addresses everyday.I get 15-20 mails everyday eachone comming from different address.This is happening with my Yahoo account.
Can somebody tell me what can be done to permanently avoid getting such mails?

Please help!!!!!!

Thanks in Anticipation.

Open a different free yahoo account. Then.. NEVER POST YOUR NEW ADDRESS OR SIGN up for anything with it... Just give it out to friends, family, and fellow workers.

Keep the old one alive until everyone gets your new address... when that is done, you now have a spam mail address for signing up for stuff on the web, and a legit address for normal e-mails.

Good luck

You cannot block the SWEN worm, unless you have subject-line and attachment filtering. Your only option is to do answer #1.
