Why do you think its your computer, sounds like your FB account may have been hacked. Try doing one of the online virus scans on your PC if you are really not sure about your PC being clean.

Moh3en, The first thing that comes to mind is that your browser is set to remember your logins. Could you have said YES to the pop up that says have IE or FF remember the password?

That's what it looks like to me.

Its very strange that FB is sending you an SMS to notify you that you have logged in. They don't have a function for that as far as I am aware. If it is a push notification from your phone (which I think it might be) - they can have a significant delay time. Ie. you log in on Monday night and wake up the next morning with notifications.

Also - regarding the second 'SMS';
In order to change your password you have to log into Facebook thus you would receive a second notification legitimately.

Doesn't sound like a trojan to me. Try changing your password and your password hints again.

Hi Moh3en

I came across something similar with a friend who had used their name in their E Mail address and FB account. If a "Black Hat" spots this, they can often find your details from it. Is your name within your E mail address or FB account details?

If not, I would still change those details, as advised by Toxic.

One of those or else Malwarebytes should settle if you're infected, which I doubt.

I'd also replace AVG crapware with Microsoft Security Essentials and the Win7 firewall which is recommended by almost everyone here.

Commode-O ! is also recommended by no one I've seen.
