How do i clean the spam out of my computer?

Question

When I receive spam from GrooveJetMail.com, it always shows the sent date as 1 or more days previous. As I handle my email, I check to see how many unopened emails there are in Outlook and when I see that I have unopened emails that do not display in the current day, I find an email from GrooveJet Mail. It shows from: GrooveJetMail.com To: [email protected] and subject R4 Absolutely Health Care #1 ranked Health Care Job posting/resume site. Is there an advantage for a spammer to have an incorrect date or was the email that delayed in transit.

Here's a copy of the header from the most recent spam:

O.K Go to www.download.com and get ad-aware SE personal It's free install it Run the live update on it And remove EVERYTING that it finds Then reboot yore computer and run it again If it still finds stuff on there under critical objects then you have a more serious problem Restart in safe mode Its easy just keep hitting F8 when it begins to boot and select safe mode Then try the ad-aware again This should fix it.

Good luck
