    Is there any third party program or anything anyone knows of where A guest can leave my guest account and not have to delete the files before he exits.

    A temporary Guest account has been available for the last few OS versions - it is erased when they log out.

    OK, your initial post was worded badly, but if you DON'T want stuff deleted, just create and name other accounts as desired using the Users & Groups pane in System Preferences. I would not let guests use an admin account, though.

    I also make a separate administrative account when installing a new system. The administrative account is just there as backup, since I can do everything from a standard one by using the admin credentials.

    I'd have thought that a guest account with admin rights would be a fundamentally bad idea!

    If it's just *you* logging in as Guest and wanting to retain some of your files then why not just save them to /Users/Shared where all logged in users and guests can get at them?

    What I did in the end was create another Admin account . I was going to use the guest account to save me creating another administrator account but I did last night what you said in the end
