Fine SSID in registry and rename the key on remote computer

Hi guys ,
Im trying to  create a small program in C# sharp  that will prompt a user for a username and computer name.  It will need to get the SID of the user entered. Then go into the registry of a provided computer and rename the key to .bak

Any hits would be appreciated , im fairly new to C$ and not sure where to start.

Hi,

One thing you need to consider is the security!

All computers doesn't allow you to peep in to the registry unless you have Admin previliges! Moreover, if you just take the computer name, then what is the scope of search?

I mean  - Local LAN/WAN!

can you point me in the right direction in regards to obtaining the SID of the username that's been entered.
I will need to query AD somehow and return the correct SID. Then rename it
