Is my Gmail account compromised? - Page 2

It says that my IP address xxx.xxx.148.148 is located where I live, as thats my IP address.

It shows when I log in normal.

However there is this other address 174.140.173.93 that it says is located in Washington.

Here is the ARIN on the address: http://whois.arin.net/rest/org/DIREC-104

It said that that IP address accessed my account about 1 hour ago.

I also noticed a minute ago that my password did not work and I had to reset it.

But heres the thing, I have ran several anti-virus scans and even removed all the "riskware" like keygens that I knew to be safe, just to be 100% safe. I changed all my passwords to a different one twice now.

This is getting frustrating. How the heck can they keep hacking me, if they are?

LOL, not located in washington, located in portland oregon on washington street.

LOL, gmail details says its located in (WA) state.

I know the ARIN says Portland, OR but thats for the ISP "DirectSpace Networks, LLC." which may give service to many places.

The personal IP is blocked from location by the ISP, and only the range of IPs the ISP has can be found out location wise.

Come on bro... back on topic.

I am getting an authenticator for wow.

I just don't understand how I could prevent getting my gmail password hacked?

I don't get phished, I don't have a key logger, I don't go to unknown websites, I run virus scans, I have a complicated non-dic password... what else can I do?
Not even a land line?
You only have to do it once every so often on your main machine.
But if you do sign up using a fixed land line, it can be a problem if you want to login to a computer away from your house.

Yes thats my real name, and there are 1000 more of them even remotely close to where I live. How is that asking for it?

I don't have a land line, or cell phone. I am that "forever alone" guy you can google.

May have figured it out, not sure at all though.

On my google account settings, yahoo open ID login was granted access to my account. And I never mess with Yahoo...

I revoked the access: "You have successfully revoked access to open.login.yahoo.com "

Well, here are some helpful tips:
-Keep passwords long and mixed with different types of characters and numbers.
-Don't log into your email while you are in a public place, if you do, at least change your password afterwords.
-Use different passwords for different accounts.
-Check the link of websites to make sure its correct, there are fake email sites to fish out your passwords.

Heres an example of what my current password looks like: tQ~@h8~{>!=M$}U

I only log in at my college, which cant be garunteed as safe, but they get wiped fully every night so they can be trusted for the most part.

I think I'm going to have a super password for my gmail/youtube/wow account and have a normal easier password for my other accounts like overclock.

I am very good and phishing stuff now. I can detect it fairly easy. And yes I learned by falling for one in the past lol.

Enable two step verification on your Gmail, anytime an unknown computer logs in you get a text or phone call with an authorization code to enter to access your mail. You can set it up to where it remembers computers for 30days.

Next time someone even guesses your pass, they will not be able to get the code to access your account.

See that someone mentioned this already

Have you done any testing for root kits with an antivirus running off of bootable media?
