  • Nothing is using that account by default. However, if the password was known by others in your organization, maybe they used it for their own need. Which is a very bad practice...

  • Personally, i would reset it and wait to see if anything will broke ;)

    By default, Nothing is configured to run with the "Administrator" account as Pierre Audonnet said and it's really not a good idea to use this account to run job or anything else.

    You can also monitor the Administrator account and look for any authentication.  This may help you to know if any service / jobs is set with the Administrator account
