    Please help ! Iv deleted something I shouldn't have !!


    I am really in trouble now. I have deleted the guest folder in the users folder on the c drive . I did this because I wanted the computer to create a new guest folder for the guest account so that all the old guest account data can be deleted and a completely new guest account will exist. Everytime I log into the guest account now it says something like "preparing windows" and it takes a long time to log in . Is there any way that I can fix this without having to reset the pc ??Thank you

    There might be something in the tutorial section - try searching for something like Guest account
    This might get you started: https://www.eightforums.com/gtsearch....t%22&sa=Search

    Try disabling the guest account, restart, and then enable the guest account.
