Delete XP Built-in guest account
Posted on 2011-03-07
I need to complete remove the built-in Guest account from Windows XP....I know how to disable the account, but I need to know if there is a way to completely remove that account from the machine. I tried right-clicking the Guest account and hitting Delete from Local Users & Group window, but it's a no-go, get an error message saying built-in accounts cannot be deleted, and I am logged in as an administrator.
I also ran a command prompt as an admin, and used the 'net user guest /delete' command, and same error (System error 1371....cannot perform this operation on built-in accounts)
