I am seeing this kind of output when I run net localgroup Administrators


I cannot delete someotheridIdontrecognize via net localgroup Administrators someotheridIdontrecognize /delete but I can add another account with same id as someotheridIdontrecognize with net localgroup Administrators someotheridIdontrecognize /add.

now it gets listed twice


Is there anyway to find out what SID each of these accounts are associated with and why I am unable to remove those useraccounts ?

Particularly troubling is that there seem to be two accounts with the same id as my login, so I afraid to even try to delete one of them!

any troubleshooting help greatly appreciated. I am on XP SP3 workstation connected ot MYDOMAIN
