Local security settings *GUID showing up instead of username/group*

I am trying to view what users have "log on as a service" privleges and the only thing that shows up is what I think is the GUID.  It shows up like this:  *S-1-5-21-220523388-2139871995-725345543-1003

I am trying to figure out how to find out what user that is and why it is showing up like that.

Thanks,

Thanks but do you know why they are showing up as the GUID and not the actual name?

from the site

"A lot of things in Active Directory audit events show up as GUIDs but are not translated.  Why is that?

Well, we only translate one kind of AD guid, the objectGUID.  However AD uses GUIDs in several ways.  For instance, group policy objects have a common name (CN) which is a string-ized GUID.  Control Access Rights have a rightsGuid."
