I see, so effectively I could enable the administrator account to show - and then delete the superfluous user admin account. Many thanks once again for your insight Shawn.
I would not delete the other administrator account. Instead, I would not use the built-in Administrator and only use the default administrator account setup during installation. The built-in Administrator is suppose to be for getting you out of trouble in case something happens to your default one.
