Normally you can physically remove any passwords saved into your browsers manually. A sure fire way of removing the passwords is to reset your browsers. All browser data will be lost though, including favorites and bookmarks.
You are totally correct in thinking that a guest account could easily infect a machine with malware. It is not even necessary to do stupid things to get infected. Many legitimate sites get hacked everyday and dish up malware to unsuspecting surfers. Clicking ads increases your chance of getting malware, but this isn't the be all and end all of it. As with earlier versions of XP one could expect that newer attacks on the OS wouldn't even require that you have a browser open to get infected, only that you are on the net. It's something to think about, for many who wish to soldier on using it...

That's great advice...
Another way of creating strong passwords is to use a phrase that is true to you, then take the first letters for your password... but be creative...
I really like to walk on the beach with my dog Rover, on Saturday mornings!
Super strong non dictionary password, that you can actually remember.
