Yes changing your SID will cause this. The SID is a unique identifier that is given to objects. If you delete an account and then rename it the same name it will have a different SID.

Whenever i copy a files from external device lik cd dvd or usb. It automatically turns in encrypted format ie all files r in green colour. Can any1 solve this prob. Pls


You can go to the desktop folder and see if that whole folder is set as encrypted. Right click on the folder and clock properties. Then click the advanced button, and see if the encrypted check box is marked. If it is, see if you can clear the check mark.Try doing the same thing with any individual file that is encrypted. You can format a USB drive with some format other than NTFS. When you copy an encrypted file over to that USB drive, it should force it to be unencrypted, if it is being encrypted by EFS. Otherwise, it was encrypted before it was put on the CD or DVD, and there is nothing you can do except try to get the password used to encrypt it.

I have HTC Viva touch phone, how to convert MENC file to jpeg.


Go to Start, Settings, System, Encryption (or someplace similar) and uncheck the “Encrypt files when placed on a storage card” box. Now all NEW files will be in-the-clear, but existing files will still be encrypted. (Don’t forget to toggle this back when you’re done if you want to.) Next, navigate to your File Explorer, then to your Storage Card. Make a new folder (name it something obvious like “Unencrypted Stuff”). Now, find whatever files you want to unencrypt and move (or copy) them into this folder. You can now pop your storage card out and read them on any other computer (or on any phone for that matter). You also freed up between 8K and 16K per encrypted file. I believe it helps. Its easy and workable. :) Cheers!!

How do I encrypt an individual computer file?


Hi brianeckhear

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
  2. Locate the file that you want, right-click the file, and then click Properties.
  3. On the General tab, click Advanced.
  4. Under Compress or Encrypt attributes, select the Encrypt contents to secure data check box, and then click OK.
  5. Click OK. If the file is located in an unencrypted folder, you receive an Encryption Warning dialog box. Use one of the following steps:
    • If you want to encrypt only the file, click Encrypt the file only, and then click OK.
    • If you want to encrypt the file and the folder in which it is located, click Encrypt the file and the parent folder, and then click OK.
Note that if you allow other users access to an encrypted folder and they put an encrypted file in it then they would need to grant you access to file before you can open it.

Also encrypted files cannot be stored on remote servers unless it's configured as Trusted for delegation. To do that you would need admin access to the domain controller

More info can be found here

I'm not 100% certain but I don't think encryption capabilities are built into Windows Home editions. You could compress the file in this case and password protect it.

Free agent doesnt encrypt


I Posted a solution to this prob but i don't see it anymore. Your ext drive is Encrypting your folder. It just knows you're the one using it. If I took it and plugged it in to my computer, it would recognize my user name as t0mthab0mb and prompt me for the password. Try it. Create a different user account on your computer, then try to access the encryption folder from the new account.

Receive Security Warning


So this is in your internet window? Pretty much all internet windows are unencrypted and unsafe. Use Outlook for encryption. It is more than likely is a generic XP warning window. Click on it and should just redirect you Yahoo. Yahoo mail, hotmail, gmail, they are all encrypted to a certain degree. Don't send passwords, bank account info, etc. through email though. Hope that helped.
