Is guest mode available in windows 7?

I need something like guest mode for a couple of computers I'm working on. I have guest accounts but I'd like their histories to be wiped when the users log out of the accounts. Thank you for your help.

See here: How to Turn the Guest Account On or Off in Windows 7

You can wipe the history by running a program or script at logoff or logon to do what you need.

I have guest accounts installed on both computers. what I'm asking about is "guest mode". It was available on Windows XP. With guest mode activated all activity in a guest account would be wiped when they signed out. I'm helping out a small library. They have 2 computers for use by the general public. I'm trying to find a way to keep from having to manually erase guest activity.
