Yeah it sounds like you have been hacked.
Never ever install Windows and not assign a password to both the built in Admin account and your NAMED Admin account. But in 7 the built in Admin account is deactivated.
But you still need to assign a password to your NAMED account. Especially if you are going out to some Public network.
