depends what addon you used, i have seen this ocurring before but i have no clue as to what causes it. at first i thought that they were sub users or something, but appearantly they can be admins as well. go figure

@ dgelwin
Thanx for your reply, but do you suggest anything to figure out what is causing this, can I know which add-on is responsible?

This usually occurs when setup finds a folder with the username already in documents and settings, so if you are copying any folder called administrator before the first logon, that is what causes a folder named administrator.computer name. Best way would be to copy you folder (or settings) to the administrator folder after first logon. Hope that is clear to you? :)

holy crap i have never seen such a complete winnt.sif file, but i think i found out your problem you have autopartition on. dont know but could it be possible that your hard disk is not beeing formated, and seeing as hw the old administrator folder is already existent then that would explain why the other folders are beeing created.

AAAH I do not think I have Autopartiion on because it had the value of "0" which mean disabled, I think creating theAdministrator.computer name is ocuuring before the first logon becuase when I explore it I see all the temp folders which contain the silent install packages that setup used during windows installation I do not know why setup does not use the defualt Administrator account to store those temp folders
