I set up a standard user on my laptop but they can view/edit/delete ALL my document folders and files. How do I stop that (so they can only see their own)?

I did! it's a standard user account, and the 'administrator' box is unticked. I can't see any other way to set the account up but the problem is there. Also - when the new user created various prog shortcuts on his account, those icons appeared on my desktop...

I've now tried again several times but no use! Never had this problem before I got a laptop with Windows 7 so can anyone help?
