Default User confusion

XP Pro SP3. Login screen shows only one user "Andreas". When logged in his
"Documents" show the content of a folder "bruker" (means "user") in Documents
and settings. The folder "Andreas" is there, too, with folder structure and
no documents. Control Panel/Users shows Andreas (administrator), Gjest
(=Guest, inactive) and one other user ASP.NET Machine A..(limited and
password protected)
Trying to install a speech synthesis program (Voxit Budgie Pro 2.0) as
Andreas works all right until the point of acticating licenses. The procedure
aquires a start of the program as an administrator and the licenses should be
active when the specified license files are placed in th correct directory,
as they are. It seems that the normal start of the program is not on
administrative level as the licenses (voices) are not active.
There is a description that if this should be done on Vista, there is a need
to right click the program and "Run as" specifying the administrator in order
to activate the voices. Even if this method should not be neccessary for xp,
I was trigged to try, and the "Run as"-dialog shows that the current user is
"ANDERS/bruker" (anders is the name of the computer) and trying to change
give the choises "Administrator" and "bruker", the first one aquiring the
password and after that givng the message that a file rssoloapi.dll is
missing. However a file of that name is to be found in the folder
Voxit/Budgie Pro 2.0/speech/components/common
I am the IT assisting teacher for the young student owning this computer.
From where could this user "bruker" come and what is it I should do to regain
the administrator privilegies to andreas?
