Abstract:- Spams are the textual context of the system which can damage the system. The basic problem is to protect the system from such type of unwanted files. To save from system form such kind of failures we design a system which can recognize the spams and can let you know on the basis of training system. The first part consists of filling the ip address or header in the text box. In the ip.txt file we put the ip addresses of those countries or region which we want to be marked as spam and on the other hand in header.txt file we put the headers of all our contacts. In the second part we detect the spam as we compare the content of the given file with the spam.txt file. In the spam.txt file we put the spam words. For detection purposes, we used ICA++ algorithm and for matching purpose, we used Neural Networks. If the 70% of the data of the given file matches with the spam words then it is declared as spam file and at the end there are comparison between PCA & ICA++, first on the basis of max error rate second on the basis of processing time third on the basis of accuracy.
