Default Guest account re-enables itself

This happens quite frequently. I disable it and don't think a thing about it. Then just out of curiosity I check, and it's enabled. I have no idea how this is happening unless it has something to do with remote desktop being enabled.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

I have done that several times, but for whatever reason it gets enabled again.
