Default Installing software on 1 user account on XP

I hope the subject line makes sense.
I have not worried about this for a while now but now I wonder if has ever been solved.

When you more than 1 user account on your XP system it great having the use of your PC seperate from others.

Problem I am talking about is that when you install software with 1 persons account, it sometimes installs on everyone elses account aswell.
Some installers give you the option of only installing it on one account but the majority (and when it matters) dont.

Obviously you can just delete the shortcuts to the program on the accounts that you dont want access to but it is a hassel with so many programs, accessories, ADMINSTARTIORS TOOLS, SYSTEM TOOLS.. to keep away from the kids etc etc.
Ontop of that, when you do sort it all out, the second you create another account youre all back to square one with that acc!

No doubt you guys have heard of this so please... whats the best way around.
