Hi Ivonnia,

Did you try accessing the Guest account before?

Did you come across this error before?

Method 1:

Check if the ‘System Event notification service’ is started.

a. Click on Start, type services.msc in the search box.

b. In the services list, select “System Event notification service” and double click on it.

c. In the properties make sure that start up type is set to Automatic.

d.  If it already says: "Automatic", then click on the "Recovery" tab at the top, and change the "First Failure" line to "Restart the Service", then click on "apply", then OK.

e. Make sure Event Log Service is also on Automatic.

Method 2:

I suggest that you disable the Firewall temporarily and then check for the issue.

 Note: Please make sure that you enable the Firewall after performing the test to keep your computer protected.

Also have a look at the below link where the user Cartel has fixed a similar kind of issue on Tuesday, June 12, 2007 2:09 AM by disabling Firewall on the computer:

Hope this helps.
