    guest account as administrator

    I'm working on setting up a W7Starter computer and ran into a problem with the guest account. I have the original user account as adm, I added another account for me to use, and third account for my co-worker, and activated the guest account. The computer is a Compaq Presario, which has a recovery partition on it. I found a way to hack the registry to hide that drive, but to do so I had to do it for each user in admin mode. I also changed the guest to admin, made the change to hide the drive (and it is hidden), and now I can't get it to change back to a standard acct. I click on the standard button, click on change, but it doesn't change. Is there any other way to reset that? Might there be a setting in the registry even?
