Windows 7: Deleting excess Administrator accounts

Deleting excess Administrator accounts

I had some system issues last week which caused me to recover from a restore point several times. The restore point was made prior to enabling the Administrator account (which was needed for the fun-n-games), thus I had to enable the Administrator account after each recovery which led to there being five \user\Administrator... directories on my machine. Needless to say, each of these directories has a folder icon with a lock...

So, a simple question: Can I get rid of these extra folders? If so, how?

Thanks.
