Administrator folder created by Windows 7 64 bit?

i have two laptop, one is ruuning 64bit Home premium and the other one is running 32 bit Home premium.

the 32 bit one was setup a week ago with no additional application, while the 64 bit was installed 2 months ago with 15 other applications installed.

i notice that there are 3 folders in "Users" in the 64 bit, and only 2 folders in Users in 32 bit.

the one that found in the 64 bit but no in the 32 bit is "Administrator" folder, can someone explain to me what happends?

Per user folders in the users folders are created the first time the user logins in the computer. It seems that the built-in administrator account has been used in one computer, but never in the other.
32/64 bits have nothing to do with that.

If you enabled hidden Built-In Administrator, then I would hide it again unless you plan to run on it - which is not advised to be most secure.
