Just "SYSTEM" or "CFH2008D20\SYSTEM" where CFH2008D20 is the hostname? Does the name of SYSTEM change according to which language the OS is?

Just type "SYSTEM" where you have "support" now; with no password.

It doesn't depend on the language version of Windows as far as I know.

You could also try with the normal "Administrator" account - if it works 
for Administrator, and doesn't for "support", that means that "support" 
means some (non-interactive?) privileges.
