    It is likely that you downloaded something that had a Keylogger embedded in it.
    It records all of your keystrokes and transparently sends that info to the culprit.

    Download the free version of Malwarebytes and also download Hitman Pro.
    They give you a 15 day trial.

    If worse comes to worse, reformat your hard drive and start over from scratch.

    Sounds more like a phishing attack. Did you click through any of those "problem with your account, please log in" emails?

    maybe this way will help you to solve this problem
    1. you should clear all the records after you use your account
    2. change your password, make it more complicated or change your password three times in two or there days
    3. get some safe software to protect your computer
    maybe there is other way to help you, also wish you can give me some advice

    Format the hard disk and install a fresh copy of windows. Also make sure that next time, you have a good AntiVirus program installed. AVG 2015 free version does the job pretty good.

    Ok. Let's narrow down the problem. Do you use the same email/login for all of those accounts?

    This happened to me like 2 years ago. Someone snagged my email, facebook, youtube, everything except for paypal. Then for 3 days they spammed the crap out of all my friends and relatives.

    I remember downloading this tool: http://usa.kaspersky.com/downloads/TDSSKiller

    Ran it once time, changed my passwords and the spamming stopped.

    Good luck.

    Scan your system for Spy-Ware, these small bits of software are sometimes missed by the antivirus, and there is a high chance of spyware being the cause of your password being stolen. If you have any other privacy software RUN that too, check if you have a fire wall and that its set up properly, always scan files before you run them. Using browsers with built-in firewalls, a router's firewall, and the regular firewall on a computer helps you to prevent many problems.

    1. Take out your hard drive, put it in a bucket of cement then bury it.
    2. Move to another country and change your identity, get some plastic surgery just to be on the safe side.
    3. Buy a new computer.
    4. You should be OK now until the next time.

    or

    1. Do a scan with Malwarebytes https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/
    2. Do a scan with SuperAntiSpyware http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html
    3. Make sure your Firewall and Anti Virus Software is up to date. Also run Combofix http://www.combofix.org/ and HijackThis http://www.trendmicro.co.uk/products/free-tools-and-services/index.html finally AdwCleaner http://general-changelog-team.fr/en/tools
    4. Monitor outgoing connections https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897437 http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/cports.html
    5. Check for keyloggers https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645 http://filehippo.com/download_antilogger/
    6. Check for Rootkits http://filehippo.com/download_rootkit_revealer/ http://usa.kaspersky.com/downloads/TDSSKiller http://www.gmer.net/
    7. If everything now seems OK then you should be safe but if you are still worried THEN do a reformat and OS install.
    8. Make sure you have installed all Windows Updates https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7558
