    I went to the account tab in preferences but I don't see the guest account. did this change with Snow Leopard. I want to take the guest account off my laptop.

    First make sure you unlock the pane by going to Accounts and clicking the lock at the bottom and entering an administrator password until it's unlocked.

    Then click on "Guest Account" and un-check "Allow guests to log in to this computer"

    There is no "Accounts" button in the system preferences?

    yes, there is a account tab. I go into it, unlock, but the only account listed is mine. there is no guest account.
