is it another gamertag or is it just labeled guest? If so that is just the guest option.

The guest option is for a friend of yours to sign in if you are playing 2 player on xbox live and only one of you has a gold account. That way you can play multiplayer games like Black Ops and Halo 3 with your buddy, they will just show up as your gamertag with an extra number after it.

Yeah...I am not too sure what you mean by "guest account".  The only time I have ever seen that is on games that support the "guest" option on Xbox Live.  In games that do (like the Halos) when you start an online game, you sign in with your Gold sub.  Other players can sign on the same console and play online with you via the "guest account": they sign in under the "guest" option.  They will then show onscreen as (your GT)1, 2, 3.  This is the only time I have ever seen the "guest account".  And no, you can't delete it.  As stated above, it only shows up on games that support it.  And then it only shows up in the sign-in process for players on the same console as you.

You don't have to...the "guest account" option will show up automatically.  You don't have to do anything to make it show up.  And it does not have a GT...anyone that uses it will have your GT followed by a 1, 2, or 3.
