Welcome stevlo :D

Your rights must have changed, strange. Boot your computer to safe mode, and you should be able to log in as "Administrator". Then you'll have access to the user settings in the control panel to reset your personal settings.

I'd also do a virus/trojan scan as you may have someone gaining access to your computer. <_<
