Howto Give Guest account a password in XP

Question

kaffra    16

hi,

I heard that XP wont allow other computers on the network to browse shared files without a password protected account.

So how do i enable a password for the guest account? I cant find it in computer management.

I cant make a user account for the users either cuz its a school network, and making so many accounts would be too much.

currently no one can access my computer, either it askes for /$ipc password or it just says no permission. i have xp pro.

thank you.:)

- Go into Control Panel, Administrative Tools.

- Double click "computer management"

- Expand "Local Users and Groups"

- click the "users" folder

- On the right side, double click "Guest".. check or uncheck the boxes as necessary, then click ok.

- Right click "Guest" again, and choose "Set Password"
