No problem. I've attached a zip file. My browsers crashed when I copy/pasted, and it was too large without compressing. Thanks!

Oh great! Glad to know its clean. I'm still receiving alerts about suspicious attempts on various accounts, so I'll continue to change passwords and just keep an eye out overall. Thanks so much again!

Yep mail, message boards, shopping accounts, etc. Some are tracked to my IP while others are linked to another state or a cloaking service. The ones linked locally only occur when the computer is on.

When you have changed the passwords do you still get attempts to access them ?
I am thinking here that someone has access to all your e-mail addresses (probably via a copy of your address book) and is trying them out to see if the password can be cracked
The best way to confirm this would be to create one new e-mail address and see if that is attacked

The attempts on my email addresses are a mixed bag. I think there were 1-2 addresses with attempts even after changing the password. Otherwise, they'd stop after a password change. The suspicious website login attempts only happened once, regardless of whether or not I changed my password. There was one online store account that had 5 password reset requests within one hour. No other attempts after that.
I try to keep many of the email addresses separate. For example, I won't exchange emails between different addresses nor save alternate addresses within account settings. I do this with some but not all addresses.
