    ...today I got a message when I went into my gmail that said my account was accessed from Slovenia. Does anyone have any idea what this is about and what I should do?

    Here's a screen cap of what I'm talking about

    It was probably very real.

    The link has suggestions on what you need to check and change to protect your account.

    I will add to the suggestions and say you should send e-mails to everyone in your online gmail address book and warn them to use caution opening any e-mails and in particular any attachments that appear to be sent from your account. Some hacker could have copied all of the addresses in your address book to use to send virus infected emails to your trusting contacts. The hacker would not need access to your account to send these e-mails at some later time.

    thanks, I clicked on the link that was on the red banner to see where my account has been active at so I changed the password as the warning suggested.

    I hope this fixes this issue
