Yes it`s safe, but you really need to install an anti-virus.

Install Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

Both are free.

If it`s your pc, why didn`t you make an administrator account ?

That's very unwise. Why do you think you will be more likely to get a virus whilst in an Admin account but safe while in a user account? That doesn't make any sense. Install the software AddRAM suggested. In any case you must create at least one Admin account. Windows will not boot up without one!
