Wow, thank you both so much for your help and understanding.

I'll have to look into changing my uac later, there was a lot of information on those pages, and I've got a lot on my plate. But I'm glad I have a bit more understanding about this.

Thanks again!

Dear anarchy ABC,
If you are entering a "default" password,every time you log in, uncheck the "password never expires" and select "change password on next log in". Since there are no group users on your computer (i guess so), change the password on next log in! That should give you full Admin. rights.

The downside of operating the PC as a fully previleged Admin. is, all your programs are vulnerable to "Malware Shrapnel"! So,you must have at least one Security software running in "real-time" with "stop at the gate"ability.
I can out right suggest MalwareBytesAntiMalware-Pro version (Download site: Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer and/or an Anti-Virus program like MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials). My vote for a top AV would go to Avira internet security suite. Download site: Avira Internet Security and they are worth every penny or cent you invest on them.

best wishes,
