    malwarebytes, combofix? tdsskiller? those are things I usually trust. Check your etc/hosts file as well and make sure there are no proxies listed in internet options.

    My gmail got hacked before but there's no fucking way anyone guessed my password or comprimised my system (linux) so he had to have gotten in via some login hack or something.

    In my experience, it's probably not your computer, but your email provider.

    I can't tell you how many "spam" mails I've received from other people who had no intention of sending it, and I'm scared to know how many "I've" sent. This seems to be very true of aol accounts.
