    Hello,

    I just turned on my MacBook Pro running 10.13 to find Guest user accounts on the login screen. One I was able to turn off, but the other one I have no idea how to turn it off or where it came from. As you can see in the picture, the one with the black circle around it and pixelated, that's the one I have no idea about. Any help out there? I just tried to login with the guest user and will not allow without proper password. I should add that I did a complete OS install yesterday afternoon

    Thanks
    T

    I just used this command and removed the user, but do I need to worry?

    sudo dscl . -delete /Users/Guest

    ok, this "guest user" popped up again this morning. It wasn't there when I shut down last night. When I booted up this morning its back. it's not a normal guest user icon, it's the pixelated one, like in my pics. Anyone know what is causing this??

    I noticed there are a lot of modifications done on October 3rd starting at 1230am. Could this be this issue or is that the time developers were completing mods for the HS update this week?

    hi
    there is another forum thread on this topic and in that topic, the following solution was posted.
    i tried it on my computer (only just today however) and it worked.
    i dont know if the problem would return or not.

    in terminal, type:
    sudo fdesetup remove -user Guest

    I have tried that as well, but it comes back again. I am taking my MacBook Pro in tomorrow for another issue. I am going to speak to them about this as well.
