Is your account on your house computer ( we know its running some flavour of windows ) the admin account?
If it is ..it doesn't need to be ..create a "user" account..use that one for doing everything..especially on the web and email etc..
Only switch to admin ( give "admin" a password that must be typed in to become "admin" ) when installing software that you get in a real box that you can touch..
You'll save yourself a boatload of grief..and those who really know about security won't think you are a wuss for not running as admin ( why most people do run as "admin" ...."my damn machine and I'm running as the highest user, "admin" that's me..or only me and SO use it so.. we'll both be admin..cus its our machine" )..but will think you are sensible and not spreading the problem ..
