Local Administrator

In Windows, a local administrator account is a user account that can manage a local computer. Generally, a local administrator can do anything to the local computer, but is not able to modify information in active directory for other computers and other users.

The local administrator account is often called Administrator, but any user can be made a local admistrator by adding the user to the Local Administrator group.
