Can you give us more information. Like what are you trying to do exactly? Just run the program and it won't start-up? – BioXhazard Jul 6 '10 at 19:04
yes, exactly when i run program (Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver etc) that says: "Cannot use this product under aguest account". but works properly under another account – Sadegh Jul 6 '10 at 19:30

I had the same problem and solved it by this:

  • Create a new account as Administrator
  • Run this program
  • After that, erase the last account
