Very suspicious. I would call Google and ask for clarification. And don't click on any of the hyperlinks.

are you using a wireless router? if so , you may need to enable security. anyone within your broadcast range can pick up your signal and connect to the internet through your router if security isnt enabled.

I use Avast and SuperAntiSpyware Pro.

When I go into Control Panel>Networking and Sharing I see that I had set up the computer "Work Network".

However that was a year ago and this just started happening.

Maybe scanning for Spyware and Viruses is in order.

Yes I'm using a wireless router.
The security settings are: WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) and it has a very long password which I have the router randomly generate.
