Created new admin account, deleted old but processes running under old

Hello, I had a hard drive crash and I installed a new hdd and a new larger sdd. The sdd had the OS on it and I created a system image. I installed the new sdd and loaded the system image. At some point I created a new admin account and deleted the old admin account. If I go to the profilelist that old admin account is not listed however it shows I have processes running in the new admin account (which has a different name).

If I try to end the processes it says "access denied"? Not sure how to fix it.

Is the old user account listed in C:\Users?

Open up a command prompt . Click on type cmd in Search programs and files and press [ENTER]

Type in this command below

Code:
WMIC USERACCOUNT GET NAME,SID

It sure is! Also, the cmd showed the directory I was in was in fact C:\users\name (of account that was deleted). I tried the command above and got the message "User - alias not found"

You want to delete that user from the c:\Users folder .

Delete the account from control panel

built-in admin account vs regular admin account
Pretty basic question (I think). Is the built-in administrator's account exactly the same as a manually created local administrator's account privilege wise? Or does the built-in possess inherently elevated privileges? I have googled around, however, I can't find a clear answer for this. ...
