In order to harden a laptop, I must remove any shared user accounts.  Are there, by default in Win XP, shared user accounts?  What are they?  i.e. Guest account?  Nobody account?

By default there is a guest account, however this is usually disabled by default

To see what user accounts are on the Windows XP Machine:

Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management
In the Computer Management window: Local Users and Groups -> Users

this is a listing of the "local" users on the current computer
