Recently some hacker have tried to hack few of my E-Mails I used to register for particular gaming accounts. The passwords of the targeted E-mails were changed, even the "alternate E-mails" I used to receive password reset links were hacked as well. I managed to get the E-mails back but I can't seem to identify what actually hacked me, the hacked E-mails consisted of YahooMails, Hotmail and G-mails. I have scanned my computer with Malwarebyte, Avira & Ad-Aware (all up to date) and yet nothing malicious detected. I have checked the "alternate E-mails" in each E-mails account setting, no unknown E-mail spotted. Few of my friends suggested that it might be some high performance keyloggers or R.A.T. that capable of escaping from detection by my anti-virus. Is there any suggestions on what actually hacked me, ways to detect it and solutions? (Other than reformat)

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,
Jeannie
