  1. Download & run Malwarebytes, check for trojans, if nothing found be happy.

    To change your account back to administrator,

    Go to Start, then Run, and type in

    control userpasswords2

    and press Enter.

    In the dialog that appears, you can either add an account or check the
    properties of an account. Clicking on the Properties box will give you
    another window. There will be a tab that says Group Membership. On that tab
    you can click Other, and in the drop down box will be all sorts of account
    choices - Administrator included.

    You can also go through Control Panel...Administrative Tools...Computer
    Management to achieve the same effect.
