Default Windows XP

Does anyone know how to remove prgrams that are installed under Admin account, from the econd user account? In other words, I have some games that I installed for me to play, not for my kids. But when I switch users, they see the icons on the desktop and can run them. I'd like to restrict that or not have the programs show up at all for them? thanks

When you initially setup the accounts there is an option to keep your account seperate from the others. meaning your programs won't show on the other user accounts...
