Windows 7: Help me Deny deleting & renaming file/folder

Help me Deny deleting & renaming file/folder

Hi all.

I have these users in Windows 7 professional:

ME (account type: users)
GUEST (account type: guest)

I want to set up file permission scheme on "D:" drive this way:

1. one "D:\guesthouse" folder, that can not be deleted or renamed by ME & GUEST, but could be populated with files & subfolders with full control access by anyone.

2. ME can create and modify files & folders in D: drive except abovementioned "guesthouse".

3. GUEST should not be able to create, delete, modify anything, except files & subfolders inside "guesthouse"

now, whatever I tried, I cannot deny ME to delete or rename "guesthouse" folder.
I gave full control access to ADMINISTRATOR on it, read & execute access ME, but ME can delete and rename it anyway.
I'm good with Windows & Linux but this is something I could not find workaround for.
maybe I'm missing something with "D:" permissions?

Any help?
