Change User SID 2000/2003 domain

By michaelsvoboda79 ·
Can I change the SID of an existing account to a sid of a recently deleted account? This account was a generic account that unfortunately has a big footprint on the result of many manual program installations. So I need to give this new generic account (with the same name) the SID of the deleted one so I don't have to visit remote workstations. Thanks in advance for some help here.

Ok - so I understand how to change a computer's SID. I don't understand how this works with a user's SID to fix the problem Mike was talking about. Can somebody point me in the right direction? I have the same problem as Mike.
