Sorry I couldn't find an answer. I looked at a ton of places, because I couldn't believe there was no support, or workaround. Closest I have found is a suggestion to click the support link on the notification page and submit a ticket. But even they say they give it low priority. A Guy

No need to apologize for trying to help. If any apology is due, it is from Gmail. Thanks for the effort.

It was easier than I thought. I had failed to notice that webpage that I had attached above, had the option to use voice, as well as text. Even though the telephone number field was labeled mobile phone, I used my landline # instead, and the instant that I entered it, my telephone rang and a robot dictated a verification code. As soon as I entered that, it gave a means to change the password. that restored access to the account, so the only thing that I really don't like about this, is that I was forced to give them my telephone number. I really don't care that they say that they won't sell it, I don't even want them to have it. Que Sera Sera!

Well hell, that's great. Although I imagine it has you wondering about Gmail now. At least in the future, you know how to quickly fix it if it should happen again. I'm glad you got it sorted

It appears that my account was actually compromised, because there are 29 messages in my inbox that shouldn't be. They are Gmail notifications of undeliverable mail, which I never sent. I have no idea of how many were actually delivered. The strange thing is that on the ones that were not delivered, each had multiple email addresses listed in the sent to field. I got one which appeared to be from Agnitum, but the link that it contained took me to a website offering video downloads. I have no idea if those downloads are free or not, but it really doesn't matter, because I will never download anything from them.

If they hijacked all of addresses of those who have sent me emails in the past, I have no idea of who they may be contacting in my name. I think that I need to change my email settings on all of my other accounts, including my bank, PayPal, eBay, etc.

EDIT: I don't know if that is necessary or not, because those accounts use a different password than I used at Gmail, however I have used the same password on a lot of other locations...like forums.

Well that sucks. Is it that easy to hack into GMail? Lots of posts about their accounts being compromised when I was searching. Do you think those on your contact list would let you know if they received a suspicious email that appeared to come from you?

I had email come from my Mom's account, it was spam, and not virus at least. I had her contact her ISP and change her password, etc. Spent hours scanning her PC and found no sign of any intrusion, so it appeared to be just her email compromised.

I'm much less concerned about them sending spam, because the vast majority of the email addresses in my Gmail account are not personal, and even if a spam got through to someone, they would probably just ignore it. I'm more concerned about the possibility that they may gain access to my other information, like I mentioned previously.

I just tried changing my password on both eBay and this forum a bit ago, and it doesn't appear that it succeeded. Like after submitting the change here, I used a bookmark in my browser to this website, and it just displayed the forum, with me already logged in as usual, without me needing to login. With eBay, it was so messed up, I don't know what happened, except that I can still access my account there also, just as with here.

Not to be overly simplistic, but had you signed out of 7F? Cleared the cookie and browser cache? You'll certainly want to scan your PC, but it doesn't sound like it is compromised, only your GMail, so the changing passwords shouldn't be affected. A Guy

Simplistic is what I like, but I doubt that logging out and clearing the cache will change anything, because my browser usually displays multiple login possibilities when available, yet it definitely is worth a try.

EDIT: You were right as far as this forum goes, logging in and out, after clearing cookies seemed to fix the problem here. I will just have to keep trying on eBay and elsewhere.

I have an audio problem. My Audio service isn't started. In order to do that 3 other services need to be started. I've checked those: only Multimedia Class Scheduler isn't started. When I want to do that manually, it gives an error saying he can't find the file....:confused: Does anyone know...
