Actually, the local built-in administrator account for Win 7 is disabled by default.

If for some reason your image has this account as enabled, the below link from technet shows how to disable (and enable, if you wanted)

net user administrator /active:no is the command to run once the system is built.

You could probably build your machine, run that command, then create your image?
