Windows 7 doesn't know anything about this, so they say !!! Ha! so it's being shown as unknown. This may be an oversight by Microsoft, so they say!  in the way they have deployed Internet Explorer 10 on Windows but it is for snooping on any computor !

Who is "They" here? Do "They" say that this SID will allow hackers to compromise a PC?

The link in my previous post is present in MSDN library - the core reference for Windows/Microsoft products. Do you find anywhere in the document that states hackers can compromise a PC with this SID?

It's not Windows doesn't know about that account - so it is displayed as Unknown Account. The reason for displaying Unknown Account is that the physical account does not exist. The account is executed only during installations (like a service).

For your better understanding, you can try this: create a new account (let's assume the name as new account), logon to that account, create a folder in a common location that can be accessed by both the accounts (say, C:\Users\. Access the folder from your account. Now, go to the properties of the folder->go to Security tab. You can find, under Group or usernames, your user account and the new user account names. Now, delete the new user account from your user account. Once done, again go to the folder's properties, then Security tab and check. The new user account name vanishes and you can find only the SID in the place of the new user account's name. The reason -  the account does not exist in the PC anymore and so the associated SID is displayed.

This is very common in Windows and does not provide a backdoor for hackers to compromise a PC.

I have been hacked for a week until I GOT RID OF Internet Explore 10.

 

They hacked my speed and information.

I flushed out the hack and now I am fine.

To keep hacking and other malware away fro your PC, kindly install a trusted antivirus software. Microsoft makes the best security measures to make sure the user is protected. To make your PC protected kindly install periodic Windows and other installed applications updates. There may be some hole in any application or in Windows itself. These holes are filled by the updates. If no updates are applied, it's very likely that a hacker or any malware can compromise a PC.

Kindly note that the user SID has got nothing to do with hacking.

For further reference, kindly have a look at the following links:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows7/security-checklist-for-windows-7

Make sure you've created such a security measure in your PC.
