    Hi!

    I'm trying to create a guest account via the Accounts preference pane. I want to use the guest setting that clears everything when they log out.

    When I click on the check box to enable it, I get the pinwheel forever. Then System Prefs quits responding. After that, every app I try to launch quits instantly.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks! :D

    It resets the PRAM and NVRAM. Basically, it resets many of the system settings back to default.
