Creating a new account for a user named "Administrator" is just like creating a new account for a user named "Henry." It's the same as any other account until you've told the computer what privileges the new user has.

The usual default installation would have an "Administrator" account, and it shouldn't let you make a new user with the same name, but as you've found Microsoft doesn't give much help with how many ways permissions can get screwed up, or what you can do about it.

The real reason for the decline in respect for Microsoft is that they no longer care what works, only what sells.
