Dear EE,

I'm attaching the captured image from the Central Admin of our Sharepoint Server.
As you can see from the Central Admin image, the user account shown is "System Account", in whereas I logged in as our Domain Administrator. Then when you check it's info from My Settings, the details from the captured image System Account Info was shown.

How can I change it as be DOMAIN\Administrator & not SHAREPOINT\system or System Account?
Please advise...

This isn't a big deal.  The Farm account always operates as "system".  Standard functionality.

So u mean that it's common with Sharepoint system? So this isn't the reason why I can't create SSP?
