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 create a guest account. People using the guest account can’t install software or hardware, change settings, or create a password. Because the guest account allows a user to log on to a network, browse the Internet, and shut down the computer, you should disable the guest account when it isn’t being used.

1. Open Control Panel by clicking on Start menu > Control Panel.

2. Click on User Accounts icon.

3. Click Manage another account. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, just type password or provide confirmation.
