  • SHAREPOINT\System account is the account used by application pool of your SharePoint web application in IIS when webapp is created/extended. The SHAREPOINT\system account is an identity to which Sharepoint maps internally when code is running under the identity of the hosting application pool.

    Sharepoint Administartor has full control over site with previliges to read/write/design/update/delete/contribute/manage/approve. Administrators are the owners of the site.
