oops... that would disable it alltogether! I am looking for a way to allow the express checkout only after login or creating an account.
But thanks for the fast reply!

Solved: whoever wants to do as I did, getting rid of the guest checking out option with paypal express without loosing the payment option in later checkout do the following:

delete from >catalog >shopping_cart.php

<?php
	$initialize_checkout_methods = $payment_modules->checkout_initialization_method();
	if (!empty($initialize_checkout_methods)) {
?>
  <p align="right" style="clear: both; padding: 15px 50px 0 0;"><?php echo TEXT_ALTERNATIVE_CHECKOUT_METHODS; ?></p>
<?php
	  reset($initialize_checkout_methods);
	  while (list(, $value) = each($initialize_checkout_methods)) {
?>
  <p align="right"><?php echo $value; ?></p>
<?php
	  }
	}
?>

Yes and me. Paypal checkout has caused me no end of grief for this reason.
