Windows 7: Changing game permissions

Changing game permissions

I've decided my 9 year old son is getting a tad too excitable playing my first person shooters (Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Call of Duty 1,2,3 and 4, Medal of Honour: Airborne Assault) so I want to make them off-limits for the guest account on my desktop, as that is the account my kids use.
I know how to share folders, but I want to reverse the "allow all users to access this program" decision made when installing the game. Most of my shooters run through Steam right now, so I want Steam and the Crysis games changed so only I can use them. Can anyone tell me how to do this without re-installing the games from scratch.
