why guest mode of user account discontinued?

when I had Windows 7 rc build 7100 on my system, it had a hidden feature of guest mode of user account. (this guest mode gets activated with the standard user account. it had similar feature as of Deepfreeze application)

but now when I upgraded my Windows 7 to build 7229 then I noticed that this guest mode of user account has been discontinued.

why this feature of guest mode has been discontinued?

Guest mode has not been discontinued. If you go to start>control panel>user accounts guest mode is there and probaly off. If you are in admin mode you can click on guest and enable it

dear I am talking about "Guest Mode" of user account and not the "Guest Account".

Hi, it was discussed here, you might get the reason for it going missing.

Guest mode is gone

That won't be necessary, as even this thread will lead others to the correct one that was pointed out by JFAR.
