Administrator.000 is your local profile.
Administrator is your domain profile.
If you use roaming profiles, then a .00x profile is created if ever roaming profiles cannot be downloaded.
You can get round this by making sure you always log onto the domain adminstrator account, and install all programs using this one.

If you log in locally, the administrator.000 profile will be used.

If you log onto a domain (wirh roaming profiles setup), the administrator profile is downloaded from the roaming profile directory and into the local profiles directory.  If a profile already exists with the same name, it renames that profile .000, or .001 and so forth.

It's best not to use roaming profiles for administrators.

Any roaming administrators should have their own domain admin accounts.
