Hey I have a very strange user popping up in several User Rights Assignments in my Local Security Settings. The user is a very long string of numbers, hyphens ( - ) and has a asterik ( * ) at the beginning. I'm trying to find out what it belongs to, but I can't seem to find a way to do this.

Would you please tell me how to find out what program or who this user belongs to?

Posting the "very long string of numbers, hyphens ( - ) and has a asterik ( * ) at the beginning", could help us determine what it is

I appreciate your response garmanma. I know it is an SID. I was hoping you may know of a good reference resource for SID's? If not that is ok, however, I do not feel safe posting it publicly.

Not sure, let me check my notes
You've scoped out Technet, right?
