Hello All,

I recently clicked on a Google Images picture and AVG warned it had a virus. I clicked out, ran AVG, and it said everything was clean. Recently, however, my G Mail account was compromised. Someone from a Chinese IP address logged onto the account, and then sent emails to a Chinese website to my contact list. I changed my password, but I wasn't sure if it was a virus or if my email was compromised in some other way. Yesterday, I emailed a PowerPoint presentation to a professor, which he said came up as a virus. Now when I try to open my own attachment, a browser page filled with odd text shows up. If it matters, the presentation was sent through my university's .edu account, not the G Mail. I use Windows 7.

AVG is still showing the computer is clean, but given the set of circumstances, it seems I may be infected. Thank you for your self.
