i have the same problem as described in this topic. the only difference is that its in my admin account on my computer and i cannot access that account. it needs a password and i dont have it. ive tried the basic passwords as provided to any tech item purchased; 0000, 1234, admin, and so on. nothing works and myweb.mywebsearch is completely messing with the rest of my computer.

i have 4 programs on my computer to protect it:

Spybot Search and Destroy
Super Antispyware FREE Edition
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
ESET Smart Security

after opening my admin account so i can operate programs and allow my main account to perform certain functions with "admin priviledges", my computer has never been the same and i couldnt turn off my admin account (after finding i cant give my main account permission to do squat through the admin).

ive read somewhere that opening the admin opens the gate for viruses, trojans, worms and other malicious programs to enter your computer (shortly after i opened it).

now im boned and need help badly cuz my computer never worked right after this (i feel like such a noob and an idiot)
