How do you delete the Guest account? It's turned off but it seems somehow
it could be a security threat and I'd like to delete it. Please advise.

Thanks you,

Steve

Run a command prompt as administrator.
NET USER GUEST /DELETE
should do the trick.

My advice: don't do that

Re: How do you delete the Guest account?

If it's turned off it's not a threat. It should never be used anyway.
If you do have "a guest" then create a limited user account for that
purpose.

Trying to delete parts of Windows that are "built-in" is a dangerous
practice.
