    Hi,
    I've enabled both accounts for Administrator and Guest in windows.
    I've 3 accounts now in computer:
    Mohamed
    Administrator
    Guest

    But when I try to log in using the guest account it does not work and takes me back to login screen for account Mohamed.
    But it is enabling me to log in using the administrator account as fine.
    I can switch between Account Mohamed and account Administrator as fine.
    Account Mohamed created during windows installation.
    Both accounts Administrator and Guest enabled using CMD command Run as administrator
    net user administrator /active:yes
    net user guest /active:yes
    So how to log in with Guest account?
    Thanks

    the guest account is deprecated. so the solution is : open command prompt and type : net user guest /active:yes. Run gpedit.msc then go to
    Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment
    On the right side look for policy Deny log on locally. Select Guest account and click remove and OK.
    All is done. Give feedback :)

    Yes it is working. Thanks a lot :)
    But I've realized that everything is running so slow while I've logged in as a guest. Does there is anything else should be adjusted or tweaked?
    Thanks

    I've created a new account and logged with it and added it to Guests group and it is loading as fine while the default Guest account is very slow to even load the desktop.
    Thanks my friend, I will use the new created account.
    Note: the reason for the whole thing was to use a guest account to limit any changes could be done to computer to make it secured as possible.
