PsGetSid may do it.

This is easy to do using Active Directory Users and Computers.

Click View > Advanced Features

Drill down to the user you want to know about and open the Properties.

Click the Attribute Editor tab

Scroll down to the "ObjectSID" attribute.

Profit.

I would use the ADSI Edit snap-in for the Microsoft Management Console. See Using ADSI Edit on WIN-7.

The GUID is in an Active Directory attribute called objectguid.

c:\windows\system32\LDP.exe

Connection -> Bind -> OK

Browse -> Search

Base DN : (this varies per environment)

Fitler: (samAccountName=yourAccountName)

Scope: Subtree (this does nested search)

Attributes : add "objectGUID"

...

That should do it.
