How to Turn the Guest Account On or Off in Windows 7
If you want someone to have temporary access to your computer, you can turn on the guest account. People using the guest account can't install software or hardware, change settings, or create a password. This will show you how to turn the guest account on or off in Windows 7. By default the guest account is turned off in Windows 7.
Since the guest account allows a user to log on to a network, browse the Internet, and shut down the computer, you should turn off the guest account when it isn't being used.
