    ah so main admin account is 'wizzle' which is what I am currently on
    I make another account called 'wizzle2' (with admin rights)
    I sign out of 'wizzle' and sign into 'wizzle2'.
    And once signed into 'wizzle2', then I do the command prompt step and find the SID for 'wizzle' that is listed and go from there?

    Personally, I would enable and sign in to the built-in Administrator account, and use it to change the profile folder for your "wizzle" account.

    If you wanted to change "wizzle", then you would need to sign in to a different account.
