When I got down to SID numbers, it said "6. For Two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the same Number -
NOTE:
This is if you have two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the exact same numbers, but the second (below) one has the .bak at the end of the numbers.
A) In the left pane, right click on the first (top) S-1-5..... folder (SID key) that does not have .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)
B) Add .bk to the end of the numbers. (See screenshot below)

When I tried typing .bk to the first one this came up
"The Registry Editor cannot rename S-1-5-21... Errpr while renaming key"

If you are having trouble with that approach, try Brinks second suggestion a repair install.
