Windows 7: How do I manage software in another account

How do I manage software in another account


I just created another Windows account for a family member. When I logged onto it, I see that all my programs is already installed there. The programs have no data on them, but I would like to know how to remove them from her account without deleting it from my account. I don't want to try deleting it, because I don't want the risk of my programs being uninstalled.

I would appreciate it if someone could help me.

Programs aren't installed per account. Each installation you run install it system-wide (that's why installers request administrator permissions).
Every user in the system will always use every program installed into it.

The alternative is to use the so called "portables", that you just unzip in a random folder of your choice and run directly.
