Ok, some things need to be cleared up here as I think we are thinking guest account and guest mode is the same thing. It is not.


I know guest account in windows 7 does not delete documents they have created or history or anything of the sort when they log off. All guest account does is block access to settings and other users documents. Basically making them only have access to programs installed (that don't require admin rights), and nothing else. Nothing is deleted on logoff. At least in my experience. The easiest way to fix this would be to have a script at reboot or logon of an admin account that turns off the guest acccount (purging everything) and then turns it back on.

Guest mode on the other hand info can be found here:

However, microsoft removed this once the product went out of beta-final version. Why? I have no idea. Microsoft loves getting rid of good Ideas.

No, theGuest Mode is not available on the Windows® 7 build 7600.
Microsoft® had included this under the Beta versions of Windows® 7
(and RC, I think) but removed it in the RTM release version.

There are also alternatives, like the program deepfreeze.
