"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

IsWellKnownSid is a function called the above file to know the SID of a user. If SID is not found or file is corrupted or file is not found in System32 directory then you will receive the above error or your system will reboot.

Either this file have been replaced or not consistent or not there at all in System32 folder. You can extract the file from CD using recovery console.
