    have had two accounts; guest account deactivated;
    Since two or three days when the login screen comes I also see the guest account which has never happened before (which means guest account is now visible although deactivated in system prefs) - any ideas why this is the case?
    and how can I turn that off?

    That's a 10.7.2 feature, and is there to help you if you lose your Mac. I was offput by it too, when I saw it for the first time. If you click the Guest account on the login screen, it'll reboot the Mac into Safari-only mode.

    Cheers mate,
    thanks a lot

    have never realized that this was since 10.7.2; have tried the guest account and logged (safar-only apparently works)
