Thanks for the replies guys. First of all I did what you told me, I downloaded Malwarebytes PRO And run a scan to see if I had any type of malware. It turns out this program I downloaded of the net had a binded virus with it. I'm amazed how I scanned it with Bitdefender I had nothing but now with Malwarebytes this...
So I got rid of the server.exe which was binded with it but still can't seem to turn my original admin which had all my documents and pictures to admin. I just want to activate the admin but I'm sure in the guest account I cannot activate it. So if you can please tell me how to activate the Admin account? Once again Thanks for the malware heads up.

Hello Bob,

See if you may be able to fix this by booting into Safe Mode, enable the built-in Administrator account, log out, log on to the built-in "Administrator" account, then see if you can change your user account back to being an administrator.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
