  1. Start the terminal.
  2. run gksu gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
  3. Change the allow-guest=true to allow-guest=false
  4. Save the file.
  5. reboot your computer.

Your guest account should now disappear.

  • From what I understood from your question, you don't have access to your root account right?
