It's probably a leftover from a previous Windows installation, unless you have changed the users overall since the last install.

If you wish to rename a folder like that, you need to be logged in as administrator in Safe Mode. But if this is no big problem in the running of the computer, I wouldn't worry about it much.

Another issue you might never have heard about is that you should never store any important files or data in any of the folder below the Documents and Settings branch.
The reason is that if you have a reason to reinstall your operating system, then that's the first place that gets wiped and your data will be lost. That's why I always recommend creating a separate folder on a different drive, to keep all the important things.
