My guest account is part of administrators group. How do I turn it into a normal guest account? Accidentally, a user on this PC gave full privileges to guest account, and I'd like to undo that.

I hope you put a lead pipe to the user... – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 22 '11 at 1:09
Check. What else do i need to do :) – GregC May 22 '11 at 1:30
I also disabled the guest account for now. It would be nice to have it enabled and working as it should. – GregC May 22 '11 at 1:32

Try this:

  1. Log in as Guest

  2. Go to your control panel and select "User Accounts"

  3. Click on the "Change your account type" action

  4. Select "Standard User"

This works on Vista, and this walkthru seems to indicate that Windows 7 is similar.
