Ok I'm a bit long in the tooth and trying to get used to windows 8! The trouble I'm having is that every time I boot up the window opens at the guest account. I have no idea what this is and I dont want it.Strange thing is when I look at the accounts it (guest) is switched off.

Anyway I have looked at solutions and none of them work for me.

This is what I have done.

Clicked 'settings'

clicked' control panel'

clicked 'user account and family safety'

clicked 'add or remove user accounts'

clicked on the one I want to delete (guest)

Thats where it all ends. There is no link to 'delete account for that user'

So, is it possible to delete a guest link? If not is there a way to stop this laptop from opening at the guest sign-in?

I have only had windows 8 for two weeks so nice and slowly please. :unsure:

I have no idea if this makes any difference or not but I should have said that on boot-up it is 'other user' I am faced with. It is when I do the above that I find the 'guest' user icon and my (administrator) icons.
