Removing desktop icon from one account is removing from all accounts - Windows Setup, Administration & Security

Using XP Professional. I want the Guest account to have only a few icons. The other two accounts should have many more. When I remove the icon from the guest account, the icon is also removed from the other two. But when I installed software on the guest account, the new desktop icon only appears on the guest account. Am I missing a setting? Thanks!...

    Default Re: Removing desktop icon from one account is removing from all accounts

    The icon you are trying to delete might be located under "All Users"
    profile. Go to C:\Doents and Settings\All Users and see if it's there.
    Move any icons you don't want others to see under specific user's profile.
