Is guest mode still in Windows 7

I am very interested n this but cannot seem to find in on my win 7 pro.
On the net it seems it was put in win 7 beta, then taken out, then put back in.

Is it there if so I can't seem to find it.

Thanks

Yes, open the start menu, click your user account picture and there is an option to enable the guest account on one of the links in the dialog box that opens.

Enter User Accounts from Control Panel,

select Manage Another Account,

highlight and turn on Guest Account.

Is this what you want?

Well for any future seachers it appears that guest mode was permanently taken from Windows 7 before the RC came out.

Thanks guys for the answers, but guest mode is different than the guest acount. It was a built in "Steady State" / "Deepfreeze" equilivent.
