I'm having trouble with my guest account.
The power options under advances are greyed out and do not match those as
selected in the admistrator account.
Some web sites don't function properly and act as if JVM is not installed,
although it is.
Can I log into the guest acct as an administrator? How?

Hi,

> Can I log into the guest acct as an administrator? How?

No, you can't. By design, this account is very limited and has no access to
controls over system settings.

But shouldn't the power settings on the guest acct match those of the
administrator acct? Something must not be working correctly. And the issue
about the website is a new one - it worked last year. Is it a new security
feature?

No, not necessarily. Particularly if part of PM requires control over a
background process. The guest account would not have access to that.

Many things have been locked down in the past year, particularly the ability
of plug-ins for IE to act autonomously.
