    Well this is odd, i made a new gmail for one of my sites a few days ago and i woke up to an email that someone used my password and log in from another country. How is this possible

    Are you sure it wasn't a phishing email directing you to a fake login page?

    The email was sent directly to my main gmail as a secondary option if anything happens so i don't believe its a fake login page. I even logged in the brand new account and the suspicious login email was there as well.

    Check your computer for any spyware/malware or keyloggers, just in case.

    I believe i'm in the clear guys. Just downloaded malwarebytes ran a scan and it found some "pwnthack.exe" something like that. I'm assuming that's the problem. Got rid of it, restart and here we are. Thanks guys

    Also run a scan with SUPERAntispyware.

    I find I am covered with both the free versions:

    If you actually found something I'd do a clean install. Sometimes it may seem like you got rid of it but it will still be around somewhere.
