i have windows 7, i was on facebook and opened a link that supposedly was a virus. wanted me to download new version of flashplayer in order to view a video. it seemed like windows 7 did not allow for the download to complete. but i am trying to run my spybot, and its finding PUPS and trojans but it wont let me fix the problems, says i am not the administrator. there is only one user account on my computer which is set up as administrator? did the virus get to me? how can i fix this issue. someone please help!!!!!

EDIT: Moved from Win 7 to Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.

Google how to unlock the hidden administrator account in vista and windows 7. But you should right click on the spybot icon and click "run as administrator" and it will let you remove them

Or you can restart your PC in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking and choose the Administrator account there. If you do have viruses, this would be the preferred start to removing them anyway.

Moderator: The OP mentions PUPs etc. I'd suggest moving this to "Am I Infected?"
