    When I updated to 10.7.2 it says I have a guest account on the lock screen, but my preferences say it's disabled. When I try to go into the "Guest" account, it says that the computer will restart into safari. How do I fix this?

    Try a clean install, it helped many issues in my case.

    This account appears when you have Find my Mac turned on in iCloud preferences. I believe it's designed to lure a thief into logging onto the internet so that the machine can be located.

    You can disable it by turning off Find my Mac. A restart may be required.
