Windows 7: Win7 permissions problems Help!

Win7 permissions problems Help!

Hi!
I have windows 7 on my pc, with two users, one basic and an admin (me).
I have installed the Adobe suite in the default program files directory, running the .exe file as Admin, with the right clic and check only the admin compatibility so the other user can't use or modify those programs.
My problem is:
when i have switched to the other user, i have found the folder of the Adobe suite in his Program files folder, now i'm trying to make the Adobe folder hidden, or use other methods allow me to don't show at the other user, the program's folder i've installed.

P.s
with some tries, i've made a mistake, and now the folder on the start menu, is empty when i open it, only there, in the programs files directory there are all Adobe programs.

Help
Thanks!
Y.

Can you pin the program to the start menu and then hide the folder?

From the user account; Search or navigate to the program, right click the .exe and pin to Start Menu. The program will then appear in the start menu. In the admin account, you should now be able to hide the folder, and have the program still operate in the user mode.

There is probably a more direct route through user permissions, but I don't have any other users on my current box to check.

but why when i install a program as "run as administrator" the other user can see the program's folders in his "program files" directory? he can't touch the files cause he isn't the admin but he can see and open the folder, how can i prevent this
