1) Stop using Administrator to log into Windows
2) Stop using a file:///-accessed repository
3) Set up a proper SVN server (svnserve or Apache) and you can define
whatever usernames you wish.

#1 is a Windows best practice.
#2 - file:/// is not meant to be used in a multi-user environment.
#3 is required it you don't do #1 and although not required, a
profoundly better alternative to using file:///
