I don't know what else to do. when I type in Net user, it shows 3 user names, admin, guest and my old profile.

what can I do to fix this problem?

please help!

Its a known fact that Microsoft fixed the SID problem over three years ago with the release of Vista and over 5 years ago with XP-SP2... Unless your a Network Administrator using a Sysprep image of XP-SP1 that will be rolled out to over 300 machines then you shouldnt be using New-SID!!

A reinstall is the only way to recover from running the utility

I have the UAC turned off before my computer went weird. But I Am still prevented from making any changes to the computer, not even installing ActiveX in IE.

I scoured the web trying to find a solution but so far no luck. I tried entering commands in the Elevated prompt (including the two suggestions you wrote and the way to activate the secret admin account, all I get is System Error 5 occurred. Access Denied.

I know this has to do with the fact that I ran NewSID.exe. I found one guy who posted exactly the same problem online but he's got no solution so far yet either.
