Scan all your hard drives with TDS-3 (www.diamondcs.com.au), Kaspersky AV
(www.kaspersky.com), Spybot (http://security.kolla.de/) and PestPatrol
(www.pestpartol.com). Then look at the startup registry and startup folder
and make sure mail.exe (or any other suspicious programs) are not present,
and delete them if they are.
If everything come up clean, then you should be fine changing your
passwords. Remember to change ALL passwords as the keylogger has probably
recorded them and sent them back to its evil operator.
