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 can i add guest icon to my startup screen


If your computer is not part of a domain. First check if the Guest account is turned on. You will need to be an Administrator. The guest account option is in the User Account control panel. Click Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column). Select the link for User Accounts. Click on the Guest account to turn on the option.

Then you should be able to see an option for switching to the Guest account when you log out of your current account or get to the select user screen when you turn on/restart the computer. (The default is to log in the most recent user.)

If your XP Pro computer is part of a domain, you need to use the Local Users and Groups section of Computer Management. That's in the Control Panel under Performance and Maintenance > System Tools. Right click on an account and select Properties to enable or disable the account.

I hope this helps.

I am trying to connect with my facebook account as a guest on this computer


Point your web browser at http://www.facebook.com

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the little gear icon in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

When I open Windows XP I get a pop up; ' Run as' asking me 'which account do you want to use ..


Go to your control panel and then "user accounts". at the bottom of the window that pops up there should be one or two accounts ... yours and possibly a guest account. Make sure your account says "computer administrator" Chances are you have another account name there for someone else in your home. That person may be set as the Computer Administrator? You can turn the Guest account off if you have no use for it.

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

I need to know how to get the guess acount password for an acer aspire 5050


Reset password > Possible.
'Get password' > Not possible. Native OS design does not provide this function

Quick fix: If you can login as 'guest', do so. Once done, press CTRL +
ALT + DEL and then click 'change password'. Follow subsequent steps. This becomes the account password.

Assuming you cannot login in with 'guest', do so with an account that has administrative rights.

Before proceeding, remember a key principle. To keep protected information secure, after a password is reset on a local user account, Certain information is no longer accessible, including the following:
  • E-mail that is encrypted with the user's public key
  • Internet passwords that are saved on the computer
  • Files that the user has encrypted
Now that we got that out of the way, Right mouse click 'computer'
Select 'manage' | 'Local Users and Groups' | (all in tree on the left)

Select Users folder
Shift focus to the detail pane on right. You should see 'guest'
If the guest account has an icon [arrow pointing down], it is disabled. This is a default setting in most systems. Not a good idea to activate it coz it leaves a door open for hackers.

Right click 'guest' and select 'properties'. On the general tab, you should see a check box next to the line [Account is disabled]

Enable/Disable per your pleasure. Click 'ok' back to main screen.

Right click 'guest' again. This time, select the first menu item - 'Set Password'.
Populate with your desired password. Remember it lest you are doomed to go through the whole process again.

No Icons show up


When you have your desktop up & displayed, click the right mouse button & it will bring up a menu. Hover your mouse above the "Arrange Icons By" option and it will bring up a sub menu. If the "Show Desktop Icons" option does not have a check mark to the left of it, that is your problem. If there is no check mark, navigate down to it and click on it with your left mouse button and that will make your icons display.
