I apologize in advance because I originally posted this message a few days ago but couldn't find it anywhere. I know it's somewhere but I can't find it. Since I haven't received anything from you I think I may have not posted it correctly.
Anyway, I ran Malwarebytes one day and it found two instances of Spyware.Zbot which I removed using the "Remove Selected" button.
A couple days later when I attempted to log on to my Gmail acct I was told I was entering the wrong password. I received an email from Google indicating that I had changed the password although I never changed it myself so I changed it quickly. Lo and behold a couple days later when I attempted to log in again I was told I was entering the wrong password after three tries, only this time I never received anything from Google about it. This time I changed it again and set up a verification code where whenever I log in Google will send a verification code to my cell phone that I must use to access my acct.
That's where I'm at now. I have run Malwarebytes again but it found nothing, but could I still have something in my computer? Is my gmail acct hacked?
I have a Vista 32 bit computer made by Dell.
