How can I remove shortcuts from the Guest account only? I went into the Guest Document and Settings but there is nothing in the desktop folder but there are short cuts on the desktop, the same ones I have on my administrative account. I am using a stand alone computer at home.

The shortcut is likely stored in "All Users\Desktop".
So you have to copy it to the profile of the administrator and maybe some other users, who should have it, and delete it from the all users desktop.

It is in the All Users/Desktop but not in the Guest/Desktop. When I eliminate it from AllUsers/Desktop it is of course deleted from the Administrators desktop as well, which I do not want to happen. In fact certain shortcuts are not showing up at all in the Desktop folder of the Administrator but are on the Admistrators desk top as well as the Guest's but the Guest's desktop folder is empty.

Did you really read Response #1???
All Users means "ALL USERS".
So the administrator is also only a user, with all granted rights, but it's a user.

And as I mentioned above, if you would have the linkes only for a few users, you have to copy these links to the Desktop folder of these users.
E.g.:
If you will want to have the administrator something.lnk on the desktop, you have to copy it to his profile folder\Desktop.

This has to be done also for other users, that should have this link on the desktop.

To state simply. 'Cut' from 'all users' an icon and paste into 'administrator' and 'owner' but not in 'guest' or other users who should not see it. Repeat process for all icons that should not be for 'all users'.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
