Prevent spammers from registering

I get lots of spammers registering user accounts by accident (they want to spam only).
There should be validity checks on input data to prevent this.
Possibilities: a) Have a field which must be filled with a certain value b) have a hidden field with email in the name, which MUST not be filled (spam bots usually will fill in an email :-)
It should not be a 100% secure spam prevention, but at least it should reduce unwanted registering.
