Guest Account in Windows 7

Guest account is used when you want to grant a temporary access to someone to use your computer. You can add a guest account to user accounts. The user of guest account cannot install any software or any hardware, cannot change any settings and cannot modify any passwords. We recommend the guest account to be disabled when not in use because the guest account user still has permission to log on to a network, connect and browse through internet and at the top of all, can shut down your computer.

Step by step procedure
