    For the past month, I have received many emails, claiming
    to be from microsoft, even linking itself to microsoft's
    actual site. The email tells you to download an
    installer package that would update your system...yeah

    Here is the header info:

    The only useful thing is to try to find the real origin
    (not always a simple task) and report to the ISP that
    provides the IP access, and then it is up to them to
    take some action to restrict the infected machines of
    their customers.

    why don't u simply remove the requirement to give an
    email address on this newsgroup then the people who send
    these emails will have less places to look for victims.

    i have been getting these emails and its only since i
    posted here using my genuine email address. last time i
    make that mistake

    Why don't you just use a Fake or Mundged address like most of us do. My
    displayed e-mail here is a throw-away account that I rarely even check.

    Oops. Just checked you e-amil and you did munge it.
