Guest Account does not function
The guest account, on either my Ultimate x64, or my Ultimate x86 machine,
does not work.

I can enable and then log in to the account, but then the start menu does
not work. Click and click the button, no start menu. Launching internet
explorer from the quicklaunch, and websites do not draw.

Explorer itself does seem to work alright.

Also on my x64 machine, logging in to the guest account for the first time
resulted in a blue screen... probobly, my 2nd ever on vista..says it was due
to the display.

I've pateiently stumbled over quirk after quirk from this OS since it's
launch. But this time, i'm infuriated.

Athlon x64, vista ultimate, 2gig ram..avast!
Intel core duo laptop, 1 gig ram, 1 gig readyboost.. avast! ...
I'm not running UAC.



......... (no, i will not turn it back on...)
