To be honest, it seems like you may have let someone use your personal computer. Since you had no password to begin with, who ever uses your computer will have Administrative privliges to set up a password. Ask anyone that may have used your computer if they fooled around with the user accounts. Also I would Google a password hacking tool, free if need be. If that works; make sure you set up your own Administrative password in user accounts. Then no one will be able to make any changes to your computer.
I could be wrong but hopefully this will help.
