How to Stop Spam Users Registrations in WordPress
All you need to do in order to stop spam users registrations in WordPress follow the steps below:

How to Use Stop Spammers Plugin?
Now, all we are going to setting up this plugin to work exactly what we desire from it. That’s really an easy task to setup stop spammers plugin and first option you to set from the plugin settings page is to verify your status by clicking the Check Your IP button. This will run your IP through the spam checks. If it fails and thinks you might be a spammer then quickly deactivate the plugin so it will not lock you out of your own blog.
Let me tell you that the plugin checks for spammers aggressively and is unforgiving to the point where even you may get locked out of your own blog when you log off and try to log back in. There are two options which help prevent this, but these options can make it easier for a spammer to hack your site. When you are confident that the plugin is working un-check these boxes.
Some hosts don’t pass on the correct IP Address. In some cases it is impossible to check the IP address of incoming spammers. Some users use proxy servers to protect their site. For such cases the plugin doesn’t work at all. Some protection from User Agent, Red Herring, Session Speed, Referrer and other checks, still allows the plugin to work fairly well, but spammers cannot be cached or banned by IP.
