I just added a fourth PC to my home network. All XP. The new one shares
the DSL line, like the others do. The new one can get to shared objects
on the the other three. But the other three cannot get to the new one's
files or printer, because when I click on the new one's name (Mary) I
get a greyed out Mary\Guest as the "User Name" and cannot logon on. I
turned off the Guest account on Mary, using both "User Accounts" and
"Users" from Computer Management. The new computer had been in an
office environment, where it was part of a domain and did a netlogon
when started. I have changed the system name, and put it into a
"workgroup" and fixed the TCP/IP. I now log into a local user
account(administartor access) and that account is the only enabled
account in the system. So why is "Guest" still showing up? Is there a
lingering resistry entry that I need to manually change? The "Welcome"
screen on the new system has been disabled
