On the computer that you're trying to access (fabio):

1. Type this command in the Start | Run box to enable network access
by the Guest account:

net user guest /active:yes

2. Remove the network password from the Guest account:

1. Click Start | Run.
2. Type "control userpasswords2" in the box and click OK:
3. Click Guest.
4. Click Reset Password.
5. Click OK without entering a new password.

Does "fabio" run XP Home Edition or XP Professional?
