Trying to locate mother's account by SID on car installed receive

In an effort to activate an account for my brother on my mother's sirrius account, a sirrius representative said to turn her can installed receiver to 0 to identify the SID number of her receiver - but 0 is not displaying the SID number on her sirrius car radio. Is there another way to identify her account or locate the sirrius number on her receiver which was installed at the time of purchase - some time ago. Thank you!

You can lookup the SID on Sirius.com if the reciever has been activated. Customer service should have the number as well if you know the phone number used during registration.

How to rename or move a User Profile folder ?


To rename (or move) the User Profile folder, you may use the following method. This method has been adopted from KB314843, but this page explains in detail how to rename an User account home directory.
Though you can move or rename the user profile folder, there may be some side-effects after using this method. This is because of the reason that there may be some absolute path (to the old user profile folder) references in the registry, made by third-party software. Therefore, there may be a loss of functionality in some third-party software which stores the file locations as absolute paths, in the registry.
Before modifying the registry, you need to take a full backup, in case you want to Undo the changes or to recover from disasters caused by incorrect registry modifications if any. You may use ERUNT for a full registry backup. Use Registry Editor at your own risk
Rename the User Profile folder using Windows Explorer
  • Logon to an admin account that is not the account being renamed.
  • Open the Documents and Settings folder, by typing this in Start, Run dialog:
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings
  • The list of folders will be displayed. Select the corresponding folder of the user account that you want to rename.
Example %SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\OldUsername
becomes
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\NewUsername

Next step is to notify the registry that the folder has been renamed (or the Profile Path has been changed)


Changing the ProfileImagePath value in the registry

ProfileList key, SIDs and the ProfileImagePath value The ProfileList registry key contains some sub-keys, which are nothing but the list of User Account Security Identifiers (SID). Each of the SID represents an Account. The key is located here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ ProfileList
Identify the SID for your User account, and change the Profile path
  • To know the SID for your user account, you may use the script sidlist.vbs
  • Download the script and run it. (The User Account names and SIDs will be listed in a log file, and opened automatically.)
  • Note down the SID for your account.
  • Then, in the Registry Editor, select the correct SID that belongs to your user account.
  • In the right-pane, double-click the ProfileImagePath value and set the correct path and folder name. ( The ProfileImagePath stores the full path of the User account home folder. )
Example %SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\OldUsername
becomes the following:
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\NewUsername


You're done now. Close Registry Editor, and restart Windows. See if you're able to logon to that user profile successfully. Additionally, to verify if the path has been changed successfully, type SET in the Command Prompt. If you find any abnormal behavior while running an application (in case), you may Undo the above procedure. Then you may use the Copy To Profile method instead to accomplish your task.

Have ESN Eclipse radio CD2000 with Serius adaptor installed inside the fairing on a motorcycle. Cannot physically located the serial # on the Serius unit itself or through different funtions on the radio....


The SID # you need to activate that is displayed in two places. On the unit itself, and on channel 0. Try switching to channel 0 once in Sirius mode, and the SID # should be displayed.

I sent a request to close/deactivate my daughter's account on 3-30-2011; sent notorized documents to prove I'm her mother & her account is still active! Who do I contact via phone to resolve this...


As far as I can tell you Facebook never closes or deactivates an account. If her account continues to receive posts to her wall or messages from Facebook friends it stays active.I believe that you would need to remove all here friends first and then cancel the account. In addition, Facebook never deletes an account it can always be reactivated anytime with all your information intact and up to date. As a side note; the Facebook terms of service does stipulate in so many, that Facebook owns all information posted on it.
