  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    i had to create another administrador account in order to fix some issues however when i deleted the account the SID remained and everytime my Windows boots it creates new firewall rules for that account apps...i tried this program : subinacl

    however i couldnt delete with that it first said that my server service and workstation service was not enabled then i reenabled it however it still complainted about the RPC server was unavailable..what should i do in order to get rid of that SID?

  • Hi,

    Based on my search, the SID  is related to Registry.

    If you want to delete the SID completely, you need to check the location below.

    The Registry path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\

    And expand Profilelist, you can see many S-1-5-.. files.

    Also, you can find the SID for the user.

    Hope this helps.
