Should I use "Guest" Windows account?

Postby hstraf » Sun Jun 03, 2007 9:59 am


We are currently using an Administrator account for running the internet Kiosk. (We have configured the kiosk software to use "Auto-login" with a user that has administrator privileges.)

Do you think I should change this to use the Guest Windows user instead?

(ie: Perhaps it will be more secure?)

Are there any problems or issues if we use the Guest user instead of a user with administrator privileges?

It suppose be install the program with a user with administrator privileges, and run it as a Guest User instead of a
user with administrator privileges.
We did not found any problem or issues when using Guest User instead of a
user with administrator privileges
If you change it to Guest Windows user, it will be more secure in theory (in a sense of access the computer and break the computer), but we currently did not find any different.
Please let us know if you found some problems.
