I got it fixed. I think it all came with a flashplayer update. I went into programs and features and cleaned up a lot of stuff. I ran a defrag while I was at it. That was minor - only 3%. I have Malwarebytes and Spybot Search and Destroy. I ran both.
Here's a question - why does it tell me I'm not the administrator when I change things......... but I went into the system and I am clearly listed as administrator.
