Can't get Guest Account turned back on after crash

After a minor crash of my Windows 7 HP TouchSmart 610 recently I found that my Guest Account on the start page was no longer there. I tried to turn it back my going here
Attachment 168606
and then going here
Attachment 168607
and clicking Turn On.

It didn't work. No Guest Account and it always says "turned off."
I tried going to a restore point before the accident and that didn't help.
BTW, the Guest Account files in the User directory are all there.

Can anyone help? Thansk!

Um, not sure I can do this with my HP system. No disks provided. I was hoping for a Registry hack/fix, or something easier.
