Hi - I'm new... and ofcourse - I'm already posting an "Have I been infected" post.

According to one of my less used gmail accounts when I logged into gmail today "someone else may have recently accessed your computer"

The message was displayed across the top of my gmail inbox in A RED BAR.

I opened the bar (which can also be accessed lower right on all gmail inboxes on a link called 'details') and it showed SPAIN IP ADDRESS, MY OWN SEVERAL TIMES, AND SOME FROM TX, WV, AND A COUPLE OF OTHER US STATES.

The disturbing thing was that the access occured 11/21 and today is 11/23 (but I didn't get the red bar warning message until today....arg!)

I checked my Windows Defender and it was set to 'TURNED OFF' which suprised me - because it's normally ON.

Any advice...?

I ran the 1.5 hour Malwarebytes using a previous install (from about a month ago) and it came out clean as a whistle.

Thanks,
70sGirl
