Windows 7: Setup standard account

Thanks. That's almost the solution. I had to go to the location where user = 'All Users' and cut & paste everything from there into the location where user = 'Administrator'. The problem was not with user = 'Guest', it was the fact that everything was located under 'All Users'. Now it looks just the way I want it.

I did it once before and now that I'm trying again, it's denying access with user = 'All Users'. I want to cut & paste from their into the administrator account show it doesn't show up in Visitor accuount. How do I gain access? I am logged in as administrator.Thanks
