Not sure if this is the right forum, if not sorry. Anyways, I stupidly downloaded a program to change my SID in order to install a program. I wasnt sure exactly what a SID was so during the process I searched it. After realizing it was unneccessary for me to be changing it I cancelled the change half way through and quickly did a system restore. I now am unable to open most files, download new files, copy files onto a CD or USB drive among many other things. Is my system basically fried or is there a way I can fix it?

Let it finish what it started and you should be fine, failing that you might have to take ownership of your files, but newsid should fix the problem anyway.
