Someone let me know what i must do please!

Everyday i get files infected by the [w32/netsky.p.eml!exe]

Mcafee security detects them and deletes them but this is an ongoing process

Maybe about 20 to 30 infections daily.

Personally, if you don't scan for trojans in safe mode, you will have a marginal success rate at removing them. I would, as a base line measure, download the Sysclean Damage Package along with the latest patttern files and do a sysclean scan in safe mode. Also, turn off system restore and purge it of possible infections.

McAfee / W32/Netsky.p.eml!exe - info.

According to McAfee:

W32/Netsky.p.eml!exe is the detection of W32/Netsky.p@MM in .exe format within an email message.

Receiving this detection is not an indication that the local system has become actively infected.  It's simply an indication that a user has received an email message that contained an infectious attachment.  The attachment must be run, manually, in order for infection to occur.

I figured the cpu wasn't infected....
and i figured it came from email considering the tons of email being sent to this particular email address.

This is a corporate computer that is used at my work place by many users and it recieves email for 5 different email addresses in Outlook

how do i block these types of malicious email being sent to those particular email addresses

I'm afraid that someone else will have to help you with the blocking of these e-mails. I do not know much about it.

Edit: You probably should start a new topic, with the question of blocking these e-mails in the title. It can be placed in this same forum, of course.
