There is a sticky topic at the top of this very forum dedicated to the battle against the spam scourge. The topic contains tips and mod, but to be honest you need just one mod and that is the RAC mod installed on phpBB2 to stop spam bots in their tracks.

You need to donwload the mod and follow the install instructions in the install.txt, you will find a link to the mod in the spam sticky I mentioned which is at the top of this support forum.
