    Today I'm checking up my email (gmail) ,and I saw something strange inside the folder "sent messages". There was a bunch of messages sent to " [email protected] " . I'm starting to suspect that my pc was keylogged. My anti virus doesn't reports anything. What should I do ? :( :( :(

    First, you've got a good base of malware/spyware programs there. Also get superantispyware.

    Install SAS, then reboot in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during the initial splash screen. Once in Safe Mode, choose with Networking.

    Now, update SAS. MBAM, BD, SB and run each of them.

    I would find a new Anti-virus like Kaspersky and run a full system scan before you get logged on some really important information.

    I can't really use Kaspersky, it slows down my connection totally. Why is it like that ??? :( Same thing happens with avira :S

    That's really bad if you can't install or used Kaspersky anti virus . I think you should use another anti virus that didn't slow down your pc

    After cleaning your computer, don't forget to change all of your passwords.

    I doubt it's your own pc that had a keylogger on it. (However it is possible)

    I don't like logging into stuff while I'm using public box as Windows has a very high chance it has some form of virus at any time, so I carry around a bootstick all the time (I advise against doing this; it can get you banned from things).

    Make sure you use passwords that are XKCD Certified (link). Those are impossible to brute force.

    How do you know if your PC is key logged?
    This is really the first I've ever heard of such a thing.

    If you read my first message you wouldn't post such stupid things like asking that question. No offense but I think you didn't even read my first post ,you just posted for sake of posting!
