Guest account in XP Home

I think I have tried everything I can possibly think of to try and get this account to access the internet!

It keeps saying that I will have to manually input my settings to connect to the internet, but whenever I try that, it won't allow me at all!

How on earth can I get this damn account to access the internet?

Thanks :)

go into the Guest account then control panel then Internet Options then connections and setup a manual account using the settings from one of your other user accounts.

Every time I try to do that, I get the message:

"Cannot load the Remote Access Connection Manager.

Error 5: Access is denied"

When I click on the setup, I just get that I need to be an administrator to set up the account.

It's almost like Windows won't allow me to share the same connection for 2 users!

You need to give the account administrative rights to be able to set it up in the way that you want.
