is there a way to give only to one user the ability to run any specific
application or should i disinstall these ones and reinstall for one single
user?

    to "give only to one user the ability to run any specific
    application", remove all access permissions to the folder containing the
    specific program files, from all user accounts (except Admin).

    then add access permission for one specific user account, to the folder
    containing the specific program files.

    access permissions i was referring to only apply to NTFS file system,
    and does not apply to FAT32. you really should convert to NTFS, if you
    are using XP.

    what's on the Start > Programs menu is what's in the Programs subfolder
    of the Start Menu folder, under All Users profile and each user's
    profile. to move it out, simply cut and paste from the Programs
    subfolder of the Start Menu folder of All Users profile, and paste it
    into individual(s) user(s) profile that you wish. however, this does
    not stop a person from running the program from the Run box or Explorer
    window.
