System is the Operating System. There is no USER system. It's just the OS.

If you are referrring to permissions...System is Windows, while Administrators are human users with administrative privileges to access certain files.

Why are you asking about permissions?

What are the differences between Administrator User account & System User Account



Types of user accounts

There are two types of user accounts available on your computer: computer administrator and limited. The guest account is available by default for users with no assigned account on the computer.

Computer administrator account

The computer administrator account is intended for someone who can make systemwide changes to the computer, install software, and access all non-private files on the computer. Only a user with a computer administrator account has full access to other user accounts on the computer. A user with a computer administrator account:

•Can create and delete user accounts on the computer.

•Can change other users' account names, pictures, passwords, and account types.

•Cannot change his or her own account type to limited unless there is at least one other user with a computer administrator account. This ensures that there is always at least one user with a computer administrator account on the computer.

•Can manage his or her network passwords, create a reset password disk, and set up his or her account to use a .NET Passport.


Limited account

The limited account is intended for someone who should be prohibited from changing most computer settings and deleting important files. A user with a limited account:

•Generally cannot install software or hardware, but can access programs that have already been installed on the computer.

•Can change his or her account picture and can also create, change, or delete his or her password.

•Cannot change his or her account name or account type. A user with a computer administrator account must make these kinds of changes.

•Can manage his or her network passwords, create a reset password disk, and set up his or her account to use a .NET Passport.
