    Let's change the State DWORD value for the "S-1-5-21...1104" SID key to 0 (zero), and sign out or restart computer to see if the "Dad" account may be available afterwards.

    Does the "C:\Users\Dad" folder look like it's intact with all of its personal folders (Music, Documents, etc...) and files?

    Great news.

    It appears the profile for the "Dad" account may have been corrupted. Deleting the SID key would have caused a new profile to be created for it.

    Does the new SID key for the "Dad" account still show the correct path for its "C:\Users\Dad" folder?

    I didn't delete the Dad profile key....I deleted the one after it......which only had a few lines and no name......maybe left over from rddrw......

    Ah, ok. Yeah, it was most likely a left over SID key from a corrupted profile or deleted account that didn't get deleted somehow.
