WS = workstation? Talking about your computer at work?

Domain admins can log on remotely.

Thanks for the reply Lenard,
Yes, this is a workstation at my job, I am a domain admin, are these
created when I log on to other workstations with RDP?

You have yet to mention what "these" accounts are.

Domain Admins can sign on from anywhere in the network, even from
outside the network. Users have a profile on any machine where they've
signed on even once. Domain Admins can clone user profiles anywhere they
want. In every case, the rights and permissions are set by the domain
admins.
