    New laptop - had about a month. When I got the computer I created my user account and named the laptop right after starting up.

    I just opened Properties for the C: drive, and in Security ->Permissions for Users ->Advanced, the current owner is listed as TrustedInstaller, not me.

    Obviously I can change it to match the username/computer name I created for this system, but.... is this odd?

    No. Normal. Otherwise malware would have access to every part of your system, including Windows, through your account.
