    I would suspect your computer (virus/trojan), or someone managed to hack the account.

    I highly recommend you change the password from what you were using with something more robust (cap, lower case, number and a symbol).

    Run malwarebytes and combo fix on your computer. Combofix first.

    your pc is wack yo!


    you were the victim of some malware. i shudder at the horror of what condition your PC is in.


    your a KNOWN GOOD PC to reset the passwords on all your accounts, then wipe your main PC and start over. anti-virus software is , bogs you down and doesnt remove the real problems. a re install of windows is in order.

    until you do that you are NOT safe online.


    look into ad blockers and firewalls next time around

    Changing the password on another computer will do little if he goes back and uses Gmail on it later if it's infected.

    Gmail isn't exactly the most secure email out there, and many people use poor passwords, and trust me, there are systems running 24/7 trying every account/password combo out there. My web server is under constant attack.
