Hi,

Is the server and/or your PC on a domain?
If it is your account will be in Active Directory and won't appear locally on the VPS server but will appear as an active user on the server.
Your account may appear in one of the groups or you may be a member of a domain groups added to a local group on the server.

Look in groups on the server, and see if you're in the Administrators group.
