Ignoring unknown parameter "SharePoint User Allow guests" is shown. Deleting that line seems to effect being able to access the computer from windows and originated from one of the two posts listed above. If it is needed why does it show as it does in testparm?
I know nothing about SharePoint but if you do a "man smb.conf" you will see no reference to it. Keeping the line or deleting the line should make no difference since when samba runs it ignores it:

Ignoring unknown parameter "SharePoint User Allow guests"
"testparm" is a simulator that displays the affect your smb.conf has on the defaults ( the defaults are not in smb.conf - in fact the defaults are not in a user editable file). When samba runs it takes smb.conf, compares it to the defaults, makes any additions or overrides specified in smb.conf and runs with it - just like testparm says it will. If testparm says it's ignoring something chances are pretty good that the samba service that's running on your machine is ignoring it too.
It may well be that SharePoint is designed to have one of it's parameters specified in smb.conf for reasons I'm not privy to.
