One of the sources for persistant spam email like Canadian Pharmacy is the people that produce compter programmes that supposedly rid your compter of Spam emails. However if you download thier programme the specific Spam will go only to be replaced by another a few days later/ It's a Business Gimick.

I don't think it is actually a business gimmick so much as a strait up intention to infect your computer

The program set that came with the fake Canadian pharmacy email (and a bunch of other fake emails) came with an attached malware that was designed to infect your computer. It wasn't a real business so much as a misdirection to distract you from paying attention while it opened weaknesses to your system.

For all of the drive-by downloads that could infect your computer, lots of them are pop-ups that suggest you remove the infection/check your computer. I make it a point to not click on these pop ups at all(I just close the program.) It also makes sense to not download from an unknown website.

If however you were the victim of such an attack from an email source the following is a step by step removal:
