    Your screen print is from manage user accounts - it is the same as you posted on the other thread you opened on geekstogo.com. As already stated it will show as whether enabled or not.

    You need to do ask Brink said and show what you want to change - the info you posted will always be there.

    Try pressing the print screen key as he said. It is normally somewhere in the top right corner of your keyboard and says something like "Prt Sc" on it. It is next to other keys that say "Pause" etc normally. It depends on the language - mine says "ImpEc" as my keyboard is French but it is in the same place. See the prints below from the HP user manual.

    Then open paint application and press CTRL + V. That will copy the picture of your desktop from the clipboard to the Paint application. Then you can show what it is you don't want to see. Don't post a snip or part of it - post all of it any say what it is you don't want shown as I don't think we can understand your issue at the moment.

    That's not a user account.

    Instead that's just a wireless network named "Guest2" that's within range of your wireless adapter.

    You might see if you may be able to use the tutorial below to remove it if it's a profile you created. If not, then you won't be able to remove it since it's just one that's listed as within range.

    "Guest2" is just the name of your wireless network. It is NOT a user account.

    I want rid of it.

    What I see in the box is my bigpond normal wireless account and then a hotel log that shows that I went online when away from home. I cant see the Guest2 anywhere?

    LOL, I think you have gotten us all confused. Let's get this clarified so that we can better help.

    "Guest" in your screenshot in your post at the link below cannot be removed. It can only be turned on or off.
    When asked to clarify earlier, you posted the screenshot in your post at the link below that's showing your wireless network connections instead. This is completely different than the "Guest" account from above.
    So please clarify exactly what you are wanting to remove, and we'll be happy to try and help. Those two items above have confused the matter.

    The "Guest2" wireless account I want removed as shown in my screen shot. I know it can be removed as it was not there before. It just appeared during routine fixes from techs.

    Ok. Now it's clear that you want to remove your "Guest2" wireless profile below and not a Guest account.

    Yes I saw the link but my question was it seemed to be about deleting all of my networks and not just the Guest2 one?
