Showing some numbers when doing "right click>properties>security" tab

Hello everyone,

2 week ago i was having trouble opening "my computer" and "network places" properties. Everytime i tried to do right click>properties, i got nothing. I thought my pc got infected so i reinstalled windows 7. Yesterday i did see something when i right clicked application(properties>security) I found something strange that there are some numbers like (S-1-5-21-1884898452........) listed there.

I have attached a screenshot along with this post to make it more clear for you guys.

Help needed.

thanks in advance

Those are totally normal Security Identifiers (SID) for various users on your computer. A SID always starts with S-1-5-21, then a unique ID, the last digits telling to what or whom the SID belongs. For instance the built-in administrator account SID ends in all versions of Windows with -500, the Guest account SID with -501, the SID for first user account created when installing Windows with -1000 or -1001 and so on. A SID ending with -5XX or -10XX is always a user profile SID.

To get a complete list of your user profile SIDs, give this command in Command Prompt:
Code:
wmic useraccount get name, sid
This lists all users showing their individual SID:

Hello MaDDonkey, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, the SIDs are for user accounts that are either deleted on the local PC or not currently connected to the network.
