Unauthorized change of Joomla admin password

I have Joomla! 1.5.2 Production/Stable [ Woi ] 22-March-2008 22:00 GMT. The problem is the admin password somehow changes by it self (or by some virus, etc.). I use only one administrator account, so nobody else can change it from Jomla. The password change happens about once or twice per month. And when that happens I have to manually change the password with MySQL command: UPDATE `jos_users` SET `password` = MD5('new_passwd') WHERE `jos_users`.`username` = "admin";
 
How to disable option that some program can change that password without my permission?

My answer and StormITs answer are helpful and valid. The asker has not engaged with their question after asking it.
