Windows 7: How to remove programs in standard user accounts?

How to remove programs in standard user accounts?

Please help!!
I installed Win 7 64 and loaded all programs. Everytime I create a standard user account all programs that are installed on my administrator account transfers to my 2 standard user accounts and the guest account also. Even when I try to delete a program in my guest account or standard user accounts it deletes them in every account. What am I doing wrong. Thanks for your replies!!

The best way is to deny permission to those who should not use the program

Thanks for the reply, however is this standard for Win 7 to install programs for all user accounts? So everytime I install a program that I don't want my kids to use I need to restrict permissions. What about the programs I don't want them to see?
