Add the following line to your .emacs (_emacs in your case):
    (setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil)

Check the help for `indent-tabs-mode'.
or the Info under: Emacs --> Indentation --> Just Spaces .

Notes to Eli Zaretskii: 1. Your answer is partial one because
   `indent-tabs-mode' is a buffer-local variable.
2. [Documentation issue] I checked the documentation of all "indent"
   functions and variables, and the variable `indent-tabs-mode' is
   mentioned only in the function `c-indent-command' and the variable
   `c-tab-always-indent' (Emacs 20.7). At least it should be mentioned
   in `newline-and-indent'.
