    Ok, I may have made a mistake here, I was told to click this SID thing and change my SID I code in order to be able to install this WindowBlinds application however, it seems to have gone crazy.

    After restarting my computer, It now has two users after looking in the C:/users - one Gareth.GarethPC which has NOTHING IN IT. And the other is my original GARETH account which it wont let me access - asking for an ADMIN password however It wont let me type anything in!

    So I can't do any activity that requires Admin access, i've been trying to system restore naturally Admin required.

    Any help? I'm wetting myself.

    Thanks Everyone.

    Edit: Mine is now a guest account..

    Pushing the rules quite a bit here. The only reason to change the SID is to install the program without paying for it. And at this point, if your Admin password isn't working, the rules won't let us help bypass that.

    From the sound of things, something went wrong changing the SID, and no telling what that was. Your best bet is going to be a re-install. If you don't have your data backed up, a Live CD of some kind should let you copy it off.
