GeneralWife's GMail account hacked Pin

So Mrs C logs into her GMail account yesterday and gets a 'unusual activity detected' warning and has to reset her password (via a neat SMS to her phone). Turns out someone must of obtained her password and tried to use her account to send spam. We can find zero trace of any virus or malware on her laptop and she hasn't accessed her account from anywhere else. Plus, she was using a strong password and runs the latest version of Firefox (which has a pretty good rep when it comes to phishing, etc.) She's very computer savvy so this has come as a real blow.

WTF? Should I blat her machine and reinstall XP anyway? She runs Avast but I've downloaded Malwarebytes and AdAware and even scanned it with the MS Security Essentials tool - no sign of anything dodgy.
