Why do I need admin rights for all the software on my PC?

It seems that whenever I want to run a program I now need admin rights. I need them when installing new programs too. Also, often when I try to run these programs they crash. For example, Windows Media Center closes immediately when I try to access Live TV. A window appears saying the program has crashed and it’s sending a report.

What might be causing these issues? I’ve scanned for viruses but have found none.
