    I have noticed when useing my guest account or lua some of my apps are gone. Why? The trouble is i like spywareblaster and sandboxie, so is it possible to use these apps? and is a guest account more secure then a regular user account?

    Have you checked for access to those apps through the start menu?

    Is a guest account more secure then a regular user account? Um, dunno the real answer to that one but I think it may be more secure.

    I guess Limited User Account is much secure than Guest account.
    Just a hunch. :D

    I have my guest account up and running instead of a user account, so if you guys are right ill need to activate a user account instead. It just seemed like the guest account would have had more restrictions placed on it then a regular user account. Thanks again.

    Well,

    A guest account has LUA rights minus access to some system logs. The disadvantage of Guest not needing to enter a password largely outweights this small rights limitation. Therefore it is good practise to disable the guest account since it is often targetted by malware. Use a LUA instead.

    Regards Kees
