Log in with your administrator account, go to Users and permissions in the Control Panel, click on Guest and remove/disable it.

Can I delete a app and start at level 1


Yes, as long as you don't login with the account you had before, and create a new account. Or on some games you can play as guest and not have to log in.

How do I load the Guest access page to enter code.Neighbor gave me the guest account, the page always came up, now it wont.?


Nothing wrong with your motherboard. The Guest Account was created by your operating system. Go to your Control Panel, then User Accounts, setup a Guest Account.

How do i change my password when im on as a guest


Which operating system are you on ?

Windows allows you to create a guest account that is limited in terms of its ability to change settings and download content and software. At times, you may want to reset this account's password, which is easily accomplished.

Log into the system as the administrator. Click the "Start" button and then "Control Panel." Choose "Administrative Tools" and choose "Computer Management." Click "Local Users and Groups" in the left column and then "Users." Right-click "Guest" in the main menu and choose "Properties." Enter the old and new passwords. Confirm the password. Click "Next" and "Finish."

I cant create another user account on my windows 7 after i accidentally deleted the default guest account within the system. The default guest account also fails to logon. I have tried solving this problem...


Click Start then in the search box type: System Restore

When the results of the search is returned at the top, select System Restore. When System Restore opens, select a Restore Point (date and time) before you deleted the Guest Account. System Restore will not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the date and time you selected).

You don't have to use the latest default date that it will bring up first. There is an option to see more dates or restore points.

My administrator account is corrupt and i can not log into it, but luckily i have the guest account turned on but with this account i can not create a new account like an administrator one. so how do i...


Without using 3rd party pay-for tools, I would recommend locating the Windows CD that came with the machine. I would then boot to the CD, and use the Recovery Console option. When you get into the recovery console, you should be able to log in using the administrator password only. This doesn't load the Administrator profile, it just uses the password for permissions reasons. I would then navigate to the Documents and Settings folder (assuming this is XP) and rename the Administrator profile folder to something else. Once you rename this folder, restart the computer, log in as Administrator again, and Windows will create a new profile for the Administrator, and leave your old one alone. Once you're logged in, you can browse to the old profile and get your files and pictures back.

Just create a new account and sign on to the new account copy everything from the old account before deleting the old account and then delete the back up account as well.You will then have just the newly created account and the guest account.

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.

I put a password on my computer & then made a Guest Acct and i forgot my password. Is there anyway to get it reset or something?


log in as an administrator account then from there you can delete the guest account and create a new one.

if you do not know the administrator account then you need to go into safe mode for the computer. to get to safemode, just press F8 while the computer is booting up until you are given a menu. From the menu, simply select "Safe mode" and then login to the un-passsworded admin account. once you are inside just delete the guest account there and create a new one.
